    Hey guys, can anyone tell me if it's possible to have multiple internet connections on the same...
    I'll explain my problem in some detail here..
    I already have an internet connection provided by my college with virtually no bandwidth limits but it has other restrictions like many ports blocked including those used for torrents and no FTP or SSH or VPN access outside the campus... Also most sites like RS and MU are blocked... And lately they have started using multiple ISPs (verizon and TATA Indicom) which is making my life literally hell because of my IP shifting rapidly between the two (203.xx and 56.xx)... long story short I can't live with this internet..

    So now that I have finally started earning a little money after wasting about 5 months... I decided to buy the TATA Sky Photon+ internet wireless broadband (they don't allow wired land-line phones in hostels so need to buy the slower and costlier wireless one)... It would cost me about $50 to start and $25 per month after that for 10 GB bandwidth which I'm willing to shell out...

    Now my problem is 10GB bandwidth is fine for me for occasional downloading but I do need some heavy downloading at times so I would need my college internet for that... Also there are a lot of local sites that I have to access regularly but they are accessible only through the internal network.. So I can't use only the wireless broadband...


    Phew... anyways, so can anyone please tell me if it's possible to switch between internet connections quickly? or a solution to access outside with no restrictions would be good too.. :)

    Thanks in advance,
    Uchiha



    OH and by the way...
    Happy New Year

    You can use more than 1 internet connection simulaneously in 1 PC.
    You need VMWare (or any virtualization engine: VMWare, VirtualBox, Qemu, etc) to set other connections. If you have prepared let's say 3 Virtual OSes in your VM (Virtual Machine), you are ready to have 3 more internet connection.

    Some people called a virtual machine as a Sandbox.

    @oxonbeef: I've tried using tunneling.. but it's just a temporary solution and if caught.. it can have really bad repercussions..

    @origin: hmm.. this seems like a pretty good idea.. I saw the option earlier when I used VMware but ignored it since didn't need it earlier... I suppose I could install XP over my win 7.. and use it to access the mobile broadband.. And it would actually be better since it would allow me to keep track of things.. thanks a lot man :)
