None of the ISPs support it AFAIK. For a while you could get 128K via
Indigo, but after a few seconds the routing seemed to screw up and you
got nothing much at all ;-(
To configure 2 channel bonding on the Zyxel, go into the ISP setup, and
you should see an option for "Multilink" which defaults to Off, but can
be set to either BOD (Bandwidth on demand) or ALways, in which case it
always tries to negotiate 2 channels.
It works very well when you can get it. I use it for remote access into
work where I have another Zyxel unit.
