Windows 7: How can I connect 2 ISPs to 1 computer

How can I connect 2 ISPs to 1 computer

I have 2 ISPs(One connect to office intranet and other connect to external braodband) 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. How can i switch between two ISP without doing this process? or is there any script that can switch between 2 ISP?

Both are wired.For using intranet i have to plug out intranet network and plugin external broadband to use broad band. Is there any way without plug in and plug out i can switch between two network?

One wired one wireless was my suggestion, you could leave intranet plugged in and run your broadband through wireless with a basic wireless router. Most ISPs provide one free of charge these days

I'm still confused as to why you would need to do this, aside from circumventing network policies and blocked sites, but adding another adapter should do the trick.

Can't it possible using single network adapter?

Back up to the beginning and explain why you need to do this, with details. Maybe we can suggest something else.

I am assuming you work from home? or have an office connected directly to your personal living space?

Otherwise I can't see how you would have both of these wired connections at a work place.

The easiest way would be to put a wireless router on your home ethernet and plug in your (wired) work ethernet.

Or.... if you have to keep both wired for some reason, put another short Cat5 and a connector on it. So you aren't plugging/unplugging from your computer and instead are plugging/unplugging from the connector.

good Luck!
