This is really an advanced area and not one for most to implement. Good luck!

If you google connection bonding you learn it's not something for folk that do not do the research or don't want to learn networking.

As it stands there is no user friendly connection bonding software solution. And the hardware I know of is quite expensive.

This question comes up once in a while and a few are surprised at the work involved.

Multiple Network connections - one bridge

I think the answer would be to use four (4) lan cards, one for each network connection. Each would have to be assigned to the individual network sources.

In the network connections window (XP) it is possible to select (single left mouse click) on each of the connections. Once you have them selected click on the "bridge network connections" hyperlink/icon to use all of these as a single connection.
This will create a "minibridge" connection and allow the full network throughput to be used by your computer.

I use 2 lan cards on my network computer connected to the same router to maximize my throughput the same way.

Good luck
