Boost Your Wired Ethernet Connection on Your Windows PC: Combine It with a 4G LTE Dongle

In this article, we are going to walk you through the steps to combine wired Ethernet and a 4G LTE cellular dongle on your Windows PC. You can get better Internet – faster, more stable – if you combine two connections together.

All you need is a channel bonding (or link aggregation) software app like Speedify.

Speedify can bond any number or combination of Internet connections and will intelligently distribute your online traffic among them for optimal performance. Plus, if you get disconnected from one of your connections in the middle of an important video call or file transfer, Speedify will seamlessly failover to your other working Internet connection(s) without skipping a beat.

NOTE: For best results, use Internet connections from different sources. In general, joining the same upstream network multiple times (such as the same router via Ethernet and Wi-Fi) will not improve performance.

3 Steps to Combine Wired Ethernet and 4G Cellular Dongle on Your Windows PC

Step 1: Connect your Ethernet cable to your PC

Connect an Ethernet cable between your router or modem and the Ethernet port on your PC. If your computer doesn’t have a built-in Ethernet port, try using a USB to Ethernet adapter instead.

In most cases, you will connect to the Internet automatically. If it doesn’t work, see some troubleshooting options here.

Step 2: Connect your USB Cellular Adapter to your PC

Connect your Cellular Adapter to a USB port on your PC. Some Cellular adapters require the use of proprietary dialer software to connect to the Internet. Be sure to follow the manufacturers installation and operating instructions closely.

In order to verify that your cellular connection is active, click on the computer / Wi-Fi icon in the lower right area of the taskbar (systray) and check to see if a “Cellular” tile shows up.

Don’t have a USB Cellular Adapter? You can also use a tethered iPhone/iPad or Android device!

In the majority of cases, Speedify will automatically detect and start using any Internet connections available to your device - but if you need help we have quick start guides available for most common set ups.

You can manage settings, view statistics, and even apply limits to individual connections by either clicking/tapping on them from the Dashboard or by navigating to the desired connection through the main Settings menu.

Speedify will work quietly in the background to optimize performance including prioritizing streaming web traffic to avoid stuttering, buffering and disconnects.
