Specs: Windows XP
i have two modems and one phone line. I want to be able to hook up to the internet with both modems, but only use one phone line. Is it possible, why or why not? If possible, how do I do it? Little or no cost.

You can only use one at a time, because each modem will try to connect to the Internet. but only 1 will succeed.

ok, i think I had it wrong. I have two monitors and I want them both hooked up to the internet. You know like having two different pages set up. How do I do that?? I hope I'm explaining this right. I have one of everything, but i have two monitors and I hooked them up, but they both mirror each other. I want to be able to use them both seperatley, but hooked up to one tower. Can I do that?? I'm sorry to bother you, but do you know how?

Ok, try this

Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.

In the DisplayProperties dialog box, click the Settings tab.

Click the Display list and select your second monitor.

Select the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor option. Click Apply or OK.

ok, I tried what you said. I did the first two steps, but when I went to do the third step, it would not let me. Under the display list it was only showing one monitor hook up and not the other one. On my tower, I have an adapter that split off, and can connect the two different monitor plugs, but it is not showing up on my computer. Any advice??

You can not do it using a splitter. You are sending the same signal to each monitor. you need a video card that has 2 outputs and then connect each monitor to its own output.
