Default connecting 2 networks

I'm trying to connect two networks together in one PC.

In my house we have two internet connections. Mine, and the rest of my family. Mine is upstairs and is shaw highspeed extreme, while downstairs is a telus connection. I'm putting an HTPC/ folding pc downstairs for one of the tv's. it's going to stream movies off of my network to it.
While its down there, i figure if I can, I should try to hook up to the other network so I can back up important files from the telus network.

The HTPC is going to be on wireless N for my network, and if I can hook it up to the telus network, it would be running off of G.

What your saying is fine, if your switching.. Between the Telus Wireless (G ) and the Shaw Wireless ( N ) however having both networks connected isnt going to work that smoothly..

Switching between the 2 is going to be the best option.. In my opinion.

This is where ASUS boards with WireLess AP functionality become useful.
