I have multiple internet connections available to me (my apartment complex gives us free wifi plus I have a Time Warner connection). I was wondering if it is possible to take the wireless from the apartment complex (eth1) and my Time Warner (wired on eth0) and have Ubuntu treat them as one internet connection, getting an increase in speed?

That's called NIC bonding. First hit on google was this:

Hope this helps.

Thanks, I tried searching Google but didn't get to far because I was unsure of the name of it.
