    I currently have an orange broadband connection, this is connected throughout the house to several pc's and consoles, wired and wireless. I am about to have a second phoneline and broadband connected specifically for the gaming pc. Can have both of these broadband connections on the same network?

    Well, I'd look into a dual-WAN router if you want them all on one network.

    Sure. (Sort of.) But wouldn't getting a router with QoS capability be a cheaper idea. I use a Netgear WNDR3700. Despite having 5 laptops (only two wired), 2 desktops (wired), 2 DVRs (wired), a PS3 (wired), a Western Digital box (wired), 2 phones (wireless) and one iPod Touch (wireless), I have no problems with network access even though my wife has Everquest running on three systems 24 hours a day.

    I really would like to try and set it up so I have two broadband connections. How would I go about this, I do not want to buy any more hardware.
