    I've been using the Xincom XC-DPG402 for a few months now, running
    Cable Modem and DSL over here in the colonies. (USA, about an hour
    south of Quebec/Ontario border)

    Results are very much like those depicted here:
    with a download manager, I get the full combined speed of my 3000mbps
    cable modem + my 1500mbps DSL modem -- of course, depending on the
    capability of the site I'm pulling data from.

    The Hawking unit originally was only good for having a 2nd WAN
    connection as backup - but more recent firmware allows it to do the
    full load balancing as does the Xincom.

    Xincom is currently offering rebates on the DPG402 and the newer 502 -
    but the 502 may be the better value. A new firmware upgrade
    "Aggregation Firmware" (2nd QTR - 04) will allow both units to somehow
    combine the potential of both WAN ports without the need for a
    download manager - this will be a free upgrade to owners of the
    DPG502, but has a suggested price of $99 US for owners of the 402 --
    more info/reviews at www.xincom.com

    This may be the reason that Xincom DPG 402 units are being dumped to
    liquidators - they are going for a bit less/more than $100 US on eBay
    - the 502 seems to go for about the same price as the retail chain
    gets for the 402 -
