All Connections Active: Use Both Wi-Fi and Wired Ethernet at Once on Your Windows PC
Do you have access to both wired Ethernet and Wi-Fi on your PC? Are these connections from different networks (e.g. Ethernet from your home / office router and a public Wi-Fi hotspot nearby)? Then, you’re extremely lucky – you can benefit from a super-connection by combining Wi-Fi and Ethernet together at the same time.
All you need is a channel bonding (or link aggregation) software app like Speedify. Read below to see how easy it is to combine Wi-Fi and wired Ethernet on your Windows computer using Speedify fast bonding VPN.
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 Wi-Fi and Ethernet at the Same Time on Your 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 to Wi-Fi
Verify that your Wi-Fi is enabled on your PC and connected to a network.
Click on the Wi-Fi symbol in the lower right corner of the taskbar (systray). If you’re not already connected to a Wi-Fi hotspot, turn on Wi-Fi by clicking on the tile in the lower left side of the pop-up menu then select your desired network. Keep in mind, private networks may require you to enter a password before connecting.
Step 3: Download and Install Speedify
Last but certainly not least, download and install Speedify. Once running, Speedify will automatically detect any available Internet connections and combine them for increased speed, security, and stability.
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.
Whether at home, work, or on-the-go, Speedify is the only VPN that makes your online experiences faster, more reliable, and more secure.
