2 Internet Connections on 1 PC

Specs: Windows XP

I currently share a Broadband connection with my housemates, it's a high speed and high quota internet connection that I use quite a bit. I use it for downloads web surfing and online poker.

I also have a prepaid mobile broadband internet USB key with about 1GB/month of internet quota. I bought this recently because our other internet connection is not that stable and i keep timing out on poker (which costs me lots of money) so i need a stable internet connection just for that.

Currently i just disconnect my land line internet and plug in my USB when i play poker. But that means I can not keep my downloads going (Azureus) while I play poker.

Is there a way to have both connections on at same time and tell Azureus/ Web browser to use landline connection and my poker client to use my mobile broadband one?

It wouldn't matter if web browsing/poker used my landline, just can't afford to pay for internet quota wirelessly for azureus

Running Windows XP SP2 with all the latest updates.

Sheeze, You have more than computer problems...

TCP/IP rules follow a number of things to determine path. For the most part you can't easily choose by application. There are secondary modems and routers and layer 7+ switches and virtual machines that may be able to route by application.

It would be easier to get a junky old computer to illegally download files with torrents. Might want to rethink that also.

Might want to seek help for this gambling problem first.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
