Windows 7: Can I connect 2 ISPs to 1 computer using this adapter?

Can I connect 2 ISPs to 1 computer using this adapter?


I have 2 ISPs and 1 computer(Windows7). During the day I switch between the two ISPs periodically by plugging and unplugging the cat5e cables (I never use the two ISPs at the same time). I want to simplify this process and save the RJ45 jack on my laptop from wearing out by the repeated plugging and unplugging of the cat5e cables. Could I purchase the MYWA-07 splitter and use it as an extension of the laptop jack and would it be okay to plug both ISPs in at the same time? Also, if this will work, will I be able to choose between the two ISPs by clicking on the internet access icon in the lower right hand corner of my desktop? Is there a chance that I could damage something by trying this?

Picture and specs on the MYWA-07 here: 10/100 BaseT RJ45 Plug to 2Jack T Split Adapter MYWA-07

I think I read somewhere that only one side of the splitter will work at the time which I think would be a good thing in my case.

Thanks in advance for any help,

No, I don't think that will work, sorry.
