Can I use more than one internet provider at the same time? [duplicate]

Usually a home router has only one uplink connection, enabling a single internet provider at a time. But suppose I hack my router (ie. installing linux), could I use 2 internet providers then?

"You could use a linux router to load balance and share 2+ connections across a LAN.

This article explains how to edit your route tables and /etc/rc.local file to do this."

Only if it has two physical ports, and you've got two separate lines coming into your house. If that's the case, take a look at this topic on the subject.
