Hi people.
I have broadband on a Virgin cable connection and now want to put another broadband modem onto my telephone - belt and braces!
Is it possible? Running Win XP SP2.

"now want to put another broadband modem onto my telephone - belt and braces!"

Why?

Belt and braces in case of what?

There may be a conflict between the cable connection and a BB modem

I would think the answer would be no. You can easily buy a second router and keep that as a spare but as far as I know you cannot use 2 at the same time on the same line.

I am so far from the phone exchange I can only get 516K BB - maybe, but I thought I would use it for my e-mails which I get by dial-up at the moment.
My main broadband connection is by cable but I can only get webmail that way (I think) until I get my ISP to give me mail via BB.

I use bb, and can still access normal mail that I get from my old dial up usp.

If you set your email program up, it will connect ok to your normal type Email

"My main broadband connection is by cable but I can only get webmail that way (I think) until I get my ISP to give me mail via BB".

You say you can get e-mail via (presumably Virgin) webmail, thus you can get it via an e-mail client such as Outlook Express.

Try setting it up.

you could set up a free email account which is independent of ISP from one or more from this list. presently I have yahoo hotmail and lycos. keep one for relations/friends etc another for shopping and another for silly things then you wont get spam on the good one say
