using mulitple internet connections

ive got dsl prewired into my apartment along with a separate cox cable line. is it possible to run both of those connections on the same computer for faster internet access? ive got two NIC's obviously, one wireless and one wired, both would be running to one router. would i be able to forward the dsl lan ip to the cable lan ip or something and shotgun the connections? is this even possible? thanks.

New Router

There is a router ( I can't remember the model) that has two wan ports. It can direct upload and download traffic to different wan ports. Do some research. I sugguest Newegg.com only because they have a wide varity of products.
