Windows 7: 2 internet connections on a single PC (both wired), can it be done

2 internet connections on a single PC (both wired), can it be done

I think the answer to this is just plug in other Gigabit socket and instal drivers but wanted to check with you lot first.

My motherboard is an Asus Z87 Deluxe (for my sins) and i have my earthnet cable running into the Intal LAN socket and that is fine apart from my speeds are

some of the worst in London, in fact the Shetland Islands have a faster speed them me, So after doing some digging and some negotiations with the sales staff at a 4G ISP called "Relish" i now have access to there 4G LTE hardware and have a half decent speed, however that is linked just to my lappy on a temp basis but i want to be able to feed both ISP lines into the one main PC, is it a simple case of taking another earthnet cable from the 4G router and putting it in the other Gigabit socket, enable that socket in the bios (as i have disabled it) and installing the drivers for that socket? this is what Asus say about that part of my board
Intel® I217V, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller(s)
Realtek® 8111GR, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller(s)
Dual Gigabit LAN controllers- 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) appliance
Intel® LAN- Dual interconnect between the Integrated LAN controller and Physical Layer (PHY)
Am i right?
Can you see any issues?
I will only need to use both ISp's for about 5 months when my ADSL will expire and i will carry on using Relish as i have paid for the year.
