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.

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 only because they have a wide varity of products.

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?
