can i run 2 dsl modems together

Specs: Windows 7
Hello and good evening everyone,

I have a dsl modem thru Frontier. We own a body shop which is about 200-250' away from the home. We are going to install security cameras in the shop but dont want to run lines from the shop to the home because they have to run under ground per regulations. However we dont want to run to the shop everytime to view video from the dvr. We want to be able to log on via router/modem to do that. We though that a wireless router (netgear n300) per customer service at netgear would do what we needed it to do and wouldnt have to be hard wired directly to the modem at the home but now that I have purchased it I now am told it has to be hard wired per customer service at netgear.

I am wondering if two modems turned on at the same time is compatable to work together so I can log onto that modem via internet at our home. I have had people tell me they will work together both of them being on, then some that says no.

Please help with any information on what I can do to complete this task or how to go about doing this "IF" it is possible. I dont want to have to pay 2 internet bills and or two phone bills just to be able to do this task. Or are we litteraly waisting our time? Or would a network of some kind work in this case?

Thanks for the help in advance!

You already know the answer. You just don't want to pay the price.

I dont feel like when I am told yes it will work and pay money for something and it not work no i shouldnt have to pay two bills for anything. Because I am already paying almost $200 a month now. I am wondering about networking if that would work for what I need to do.

You could setup a wireless link from one building to the other. This would allow you to have a LAN between buildings and not require a second internet connection.

What all would I need to buy and how would I go about doing that? The building is not wired with phone service or internet service and all the lines would have to be burried under ground if hard wiring is necessary. Just trying to figure out how to accomplish this without alot of expense (hiring someone to do all this work at 75.00 plus an hour).

Here's the kind of thing I'd use:

You would definitely need a SOHO Router at each end to connect these wireless devices to. On the one end, it would connect to the internet. On the other your camera(s). As a plus, if you were in your shop, you could connect to the SOHO Router and get internet access once you've got everything setup and working properly.
