    I am using Windows Vista, and as most know, if you are connected to multiple networks, it shows that you are connected to two networks. However, like XP, it gives preference to any dial-up (whether PPPoE or regular dial-up) over regular LAN. I have a USB HSDPA modem that I use for my main internet here in Saudi Arabia, and the LAN is secondary. The HSDPA speed is 3.6 mbps, while the LAN is 1 mbps using a router connected to DSL. My question is that without a Dual WAN router (especially one that can use a SIM card), could I configure windows or some programs to use both connections? Say I am downloading news binaries, and would like to use one connection, and would like to use the LAN 1mbps connection for surfing the web. Is that possible? Please advise. Thanks!
