    Why not get a separate broadband connection through the cable and company. Then, you can use a Dual-WAN router that will consolidate your 2 connections. Depends on which Dual-WAN router, it can either function as load balancer or consolidate both connections and add up the speed, or perhaps any newer router can do both.

    Dial-up is an old technology and slow.

    cable and dsl are two different broadband connections.

    if your internet modem is plugged into a phone jack, then you have dsl.. and if you have phone service with the company, then yeah, you can use your dsl connection and make a phone call/dialup connection at the same time... you'll need a filter, which the phone/dsl company should of provided you.
