Multilink isnít just for ISDN channels anymore. The new Dial-Up Networking utility lets you combine communication devices for faster comm speeds. First, create a Dial-Up Networking connection using a single device. Then right-click on its icon, select Properties and click on the Multilink tab. Click on the "Use Additional Devices" button, then add as many devices as your computer can support. If the host youíre connecting to supports "hunt group," "rotary" or "rollover" connections for multi-line access, you can use the same phone number for each new device. Otherwise, youíll need to check with the host administrator for phone numbers for each answering device. To use the multilink connection, just double-click on its icon. DUN will start the first connection and, once linked, will initiate calls from the additional devices. To see how many devices youíve actually connected with, click the "Connected" icon in the System Tray.
