Looking for Bonding VDSL / ADSL Modems / Wireless Routers? Your PC Can Do That with the Right Software
Do you connect to the Internet using a DSL type connection? Between ISP throttling issues and the increasing amount of bandwidth usage from things like music streaming, video streaming, and data intensive games and apps a regular broadband connection just isn’t enough for many people.
One solution is to get two or more DSL type connections available. This way you can combine them for more bandwidth. There’s a niche market of bonded DSL modems / routers available, compatible with all the new protocols such as VDSL and VDSL2. But why invest in expensive hardware that will get out of date in a few years when you can achieve the same result directly on your laptop?
Read below to learn how using Speedify on your computer as a bonded DSL modem / router is the best way to achieve broadband bonding.
Fixing Slow Broadband Connections with Broadband Bonding
Broadband bonding takes two or more separate Internet connections and combines them together into a single, incredibly fast pipe. You can combine any type of connections together.
In our case of bonded DSL, you can combine two or more xDSL connections to get a pipe much faster that either of them could ever offer.
When you use a bonded DSL modem / router, your computer, and all of your connected devices, will all treat all connections as a single link to the Internet. You can effectively multiply your bandwidth.
This means you never have to deal with buffering videos or music. You never have connection issues. You don’t have to worry about your neighbors taking up too much bandwidth when you use broadband bonding.
Why Use the Speedify Software App Instead of Bonding DSL Modem / Router Devices
Bonded DSL modems / routers are dedicated networking devices that connect to xDSL connections from Internet service providers and manage to use them at the same time for their aggregated bandwidth. However, there are a few caveats you should consider if you’re looking for such a device:
- compatibility with your ISP
- supported protocols
- frequency of firmware upgrades
- how easy it is to configure them
Speedify is a software-based solution for bonded DSL connections. Instead of buying an expensive piece of hardware, you can download Speedify for free on iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac devices. Just connect your computer to the available xDSL connections and Speedify will do its combining job.
Speedify works to secure, manage and monitor the quality of your Internet connections. It takes care of the broadband bonding. If one connection goes offline, it automatically reroutes all Internet activity through the remaining connection until the lost connection comes back online.
Plus, as a fast bonding VPN, it secures all your online traffic, making you anonymous on the Internet. You will be able to enjoy restricted online content from everywhere in the world and be protected against snoops and cyber criminals.
Turn Your PC into a Bonded DSL Modem / Router
As mentioned above, you can easily combine multiple xDSL connections on your computer using Speedify. Just make sure to connect all those connections to your computer through your internal network adapters / external WiFi and ethernet USB adapters. Speedify will automatically recognize and combine them.
If you want your other devices to benefit from the increase bandwidth, you can choose to turn your PC into a wireless bonded DSL router and share the combined super-pipe via WiFi.
You need to:
- Get all your xDSL connections active on your Windows PC.
- Run Speedify to combine connections and Connectify Hotpot to share them via WiFi to your other devices.
- Share your Speedify connection via WiFi through the Connectify Hotspot software for Windows.
