I am on Verizon, the only Internet provider that can provide a wired Internet connection to me. I pay for 3 down, but they only guarantee 1.5 and sometimes it is about that speed. I heard you can get a second DSL line put in and connect them together for speeds around 6. I need advice and help on what to buy and how to hook it up. I am somewhat of a techie, but just not familiar with this kind of issue. ANY help would be appreciated. The connections provided to me by Verizon will be phone jacks.

Ask about DSL bonding.

Would this be thru sales or tech support or??? Also do you have any idea of costs? Does it require more than one phone line (DSL)? Who pays for the equipment? Sorry for so many questions, but when I googled the term it didn't address these items. It is Sunday midnight here and I can call the phone company tomorrow for additional help.

I got the second DSL line installed today. Any suggestions on the name brand modem to purchase? Verizon does not appear to have a "suggested vendor" list.

Eh? Clearly you don't have a bonded dsl link. They do that. You only need a regular router. If you have two dsl lines you need a dual wan port router. Google for the best specs/prices

Verizon told me I had bonded DSL, but they installed a second phone line (number) and a modem/router. This second line has DSL on it. See the note below from Verizon.

 

HI there,

 

From what I can find out the Bonded dsl is exactly what we are trying to do for you .. the 2 DSL connections into a special modem/router ..

 

Sorry for the delay.

 

Thanks

Dee

Bonded dsl is done at the isp level. In your case you are doing the bonding by putting in a dual wan port router. Are they not providing that equipment?

You have a whole list to chose from if doing it privately
