Simultaneously two connections usb and lan

Specs: Windows Vista
Hello, is it possible to simultaneoulsy connect to two different connections one from my provider via cable or wireless... an the other with my iphone 3gs usb tethering unlimited?
I want to know if there is a chance of having both connections working at the same time but seperately so to adminsitrate for different apps so for example one can handle the downloads while using the other to surf the internet or gaming.


pd: im running on vista 64 and have an hp pavilion hdx 16 laptop 6 gb ram 2.4 ghz intel core duo cpu 8600

I think this is a practical vs theoretical question. Is it multi-tasking or time division multiplexing? Separate computers can do different jobs. Can different cores do independent jobs simultaneously? The limitation is hardware and software and the time granuality required. The short answer is not with present PC architecture and OS design. Windows can't get anywhere close.

Doing a virtual guest OS can work. Host uses one and the VM uses the other.

The problem is two fold. One is the OSI model. You can't tell an app at layer7 how to route when that is handled at layer 3 of the OSI model. The other issue is gateway. To have two gateways some sort of routing logic has to exist in tcp/ip which presently does not exist.
