Increase Your Internet Bandwidth for Faster Speeds: Combine 2 WiFi Connections
Setting up your Mac or PC to combine 2 or more WiFi connections at the same time is a very simple task. In fact, any computer running Windows 7, 8 or 10 or macOS 10.10+ can connect to any combination of available Internet connections. In most cases, setting up multiple Internet connections on your computer doesn’t even require any extra hardware.
Read below to see how simple it is to combine 2 WiFi connections and get a faster Internet connection with the help of Speedify.
Requirements to Combine 2 WiFi Connections
If you’re trying to connect multiple Internet connections for faster speeds, note that your various connections must come from different Internet sources – e.g. your home network and a close by cafe or public network. For example, WiFi and Ethernet networks that are connected to the same router device cannot be combined for increased bandwidth using channel bonding applications like Speedify, because they both share the same upstream network.
Do you live in an area with multiple WiFi networks available? See below how you can get more bandwidth than what you’re paying for and also protect your online traffic from cyber threats.
Step 1: Connect to Your Primary WiFi Network
Just connect your Mac or PC to WiFi like you normally would using your computer’s internal WiFi card. If your desktop computer doesn’t have an internal WiFi card, you should purchase a USB WiFi adapter.
Step 2: Connect to the Secondary WiFi Network
Since most computer’s today only come equipped with a single WiFi card, you’ll need to purchase a USB WiFi adapter to connect to a secondary Wi-Fi network. Once you plug that into your computer, you should be able to choose and connect to another wireless network from the connections pane on your PC. On a Mac this can be a little tricky, because OS X does not support external adapters natively. So you’ll have to install a third-party wireless manager. For this FAQ we decided to use the BearExtender WiFi Adapter and wireless manager. Once both adapters are connected to separate WiFi networks, you’re ready to go!
Step 3: Combine 2 WiFi Connections with Speedify
