    Is there a way to connect two internet connections to my powermac G5?...such as two ethernet ports, or an ethernet and a wireless or two wireless connections.

    You can connect an ethernet and a wireless, but it won't speed anything up. You can only use one connection or the other, not both at the same time...

    I have two rooms, and each room has a seperate ethernet connection but isn't shared with each other, they are completely seperate. I would like to combine them and increase the speed. I just read something about two ethernet connections but I think it only applies to osx server.

    No, it doesn't work.

    Each internet connection will have it's own WAN IP address. A server can't treat 2 IP connections as one.

    I don't think any computers available could 'combine' the two connections either...

    I believe this is what you are looking for. And while os x can do it, i'm pretty sure they both have to be on the same network.
