    Hi guys
    I'm using Transmission very often, and almost all the bandwidth is taken by it.
    right now I actually have 2 routers which have its own internet connection in my apartment,

    I'm wondering is there some OSX native support or app can give different apps(in my case is transmission and safari) a different connection(one got airport and the other got ethernet by using 2 different rounter connection).
    so I can benefit the fast web browsing and without interrupt the transmission downloading

    I've never tried this but I think it'd be possible as long as you make sure the subnets don't overlap.
    For example, set the gateway address for one router to be 192.168.1.1 and the other as 192.168.0.1.
    As I said, I've done it before but it seems plausible so long as each modem has a separate IP, and as long as the routers aren't on the same subnets.
    Best of luck, let me know if that works.
