Today, I will show you how to download multiple files simultaneously from a free file hosting service such as RapidShare, MegaUpload, FileSonic, etc.
I will also show you how to download a torrent over two connections at the same time.

What you need:
-Windows PC (haven't tried on OS X or Linux) - I'd say you would need at least 1GB RAM + a decent processor. This guide is specifically for Windows 7 but can work on XP/Vista for sure.
-VMware Workstation (preferably version 6.5 and up)
-XP installation disc/ISO
-multiple Internet connections
-Smartphone with unlimited data plan (preferably with LTE/WiMax/4G) + USB tethering through an app (not official carrier tethering app, unless you like extra fees)

(Only required for torrenting, else skip to step 4)
1. Win+R to open the Run dialog, type in hdwwiz.exe.

2. Select "Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced)".

3. Select Network Adapters > Microsoft > Microsoft Loopback Adapter and install.

4. In VMware Workstation, create a new virtual machine. Select the Custom (advanced) mode and use these settings:
-Workstation 6.5-7.x or Workstation 8.0
-Use your disc or ISO here
-Microsoft Windows XP Professional (for unattended install) or Other (for attended install)
-Name doesn't matter
-1 processor, 1 core
-256MB works fine
-Use bridged networking
-Leave as is
-New virtual disk
-IDE
-Doesn't matter (size can probably be at minimum 4GB)

5. Install XP in the VM.

6. Install VMware Tools from the "VM" dropdown.

7. Power off/restart the VM and then open the VM settings menu.

8. Change the following:
-Network adapter to Custom (VMnet0) - if you wish to torrent on multiple connections
-Sharing folders set to Always Enabled. Location can be your normal download folder or whatever. Map as network drive.

You can start downloading multiple files now. Just download 1 file each in both your normal browser and in the VM. As a bonus, to bypass the time limit, cycle your phone's data connection (turn it off and then back on) and you can bypass the time limit in the VM.

If you would like to also torrent on both connections simultaneously, continue reading.

9. Open Virtual Network Editor from the "Edit" dropdown. Change the VMnet0 "Bridged to" setting to "Microsoft Loopback Adapter".

10. Set up USB tethering on the VM using your software of choice (I use PDAnet). Connect your phone using VM > Removable Devices > *device* > Connect (Disconnect from Host). It will take a few minutes for a driver to be installed on your PC (not the VM).

11. In Network Connections in the VM, share the tethering connection (PDAnet's connection is named PDAnet Broadband Connection, but this will vary according to your tethering app).

12. Your main OS should now have an IP address on the Loopback Adapter (if not, wait a little bit and try disabling your other adapters, then re-enabling). Using that information, set up port forwarding (in the same place where you enable Internet Connection Sharing, click the Settings button) for your torrent client.

13. In your torrent client, bind an IP to your network adapters. You will most likely have to enable Advanced settings on your client. In Vuze, set the Mode to Advanced, then go to Connection > Advanced Network Settings.

This is an example of what you will see in Vuze.


Example: 192.168.1.5;eth0;eth1[2] will bind the specified IP, to all IPs of the 1st interface and the 3rd IP of the 2nd interface.
The 1st IP will be used for all services, all others are only used for load balancing.

This is a ton of network adapters. So, you're going to want to only look for the important ones. The ones that I use are net4 (my Wi-Fi adapter), eth3 (my Gigabit Ethernet adapter), and eth7 (my tethering connection). Also, here, eth28 is the Loopback Adapter that is connected to the VM through Internet Connection Sharing (note how it has an IP address). Since I want my laptop to load balance on all connections regardless of whether I'm tethering, using the VM or just my Wi-Fi/Ethernet connection, in Vuze I would enter:
10.1.2.3;net4;eth3;eth7;eth28
10.1.2.3 can be any private IP as long as it doesn't conflict with IP addresses on your network connections. (private IP is any IP in the 192.168.*.* range, 172.16.*.* - 172.31.*.* range, or 10.*.*.* range) To be safe, make sure that it's also not on the same subnet as any of your connections.

14. Save settings and start torrenting!

:D

I might add screenshots if there's enough demand for them.

I don't have dynamic, I have a sticky IP.
The word you're looking for is "static."

A sticky IP is an IP that is technically dynamic but rarely changes. With AT&T U-Verse, the only way for me to get my IP changed is to call AT&T. Resetting my modem gives me the same IP address.

With those you need to reset/disconnect at a time when the lease expires to get a chance of a new IP. If you connect right to a modem you should be able to see the lease expiry time through ipconfig.

Unfortunately, U-Verse requires the usage of one of AT&T's modem/router combos. I've already checked and there is no way to see the lease expiry time. Only feasible way is to request a VRAD swap or get a new gateway.

The router's interface should have that kind of information somewhere, I believe.

what do you have against proxies?
Privacy issues.

The proxy sees all that passes through it.
I know that but does it matter as long as it's nothing illegal? All your doing is downloading stuff

Exactly. But when is the last time you saw a torrent for a file that wasn't illegal to download?
When I saw a torrent for a Linux distro.
yea i torrent linux all the time , and there are some legal things
