Network Bridge between two Broadcom Netxtreme I adapters

Networking Forum - www.tomshardware.com
I have a HP Z800 workstation with a Windows 7 professional OS. The Z800 has two Broadcom Netxtreme I adapters. I was wondering if there would be any advantage of bridging them for increasing throughput from my 10 mbps (at best) internet connection.

I had hoped to try teaming through Broadcom Advanced Control Suite 4 but this seems designed for various forms of Server OSs --- not Windows 7.

Currently I have the two broadcom adapters each connected to my DSL router with a separate ethernet cable.

As a second question...would bridging the two adapters cause any security problems?.. seems like they would be bridged going into the router and hence not, but I'm out of my depth here.

Thanks in Advance to you Network Wizards out there.
