I have done this out of my house.... My old roomate works for the local
ISP and we set this up for the house network that we had.

I plan to do it again when InterLive, Inc. broadcasts the Miss Gay America
Pagent with CUSM in October.

As you noted we were using linux and thats the only *inx that I have heard
of being able to do this...

The feature is called Inverse Multiplexing. And is suported by most
Telebit router/modem servers which is what we were using. I have no clue
about any other manafacturer than Telebit.

The respose was quite good. I saw downloads of mine that reached the
6Kbytes/s mark. After 2 interfaces though the law of diminishing returns
kicks in. (Or so the telebit manual claims. we only tried 2)
