I just started working out of my home and need a constant internet connection for trading applications. I have both Cable and DSL service (at least I'm supposed to have DSL working soon).
Queston: What is the best way to handle these connections so that it will be easy to switch the feed into a particular computer?
I will be running one computer w/ 3 screens and another computer w/ one screen at all times. My cable connection is very fast so I plan to run my primary computer off it (3 screens) and the secondary machine off the DSL. That way I take advantage of my bandwidth from both services and also will know that both services are in fact working on a daily basis (A backup is no good if I switch over only to find it's been dead for days right!).
One other possible issue is I must login to a remote server using a RSA SecurID key fob on the 3 screen computer. So when I switch over I don't think there is anyway to avoid having to re-log in w/ the key fob code.
Anyway...what ideas are out there on the best setup solution? Just add a 2nd NIC card for the DSL ethernet connection? Anything better?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
