Easily Connect to WiFi and Ethernet Simultaneously on a Mac Using Speedify
Do you have access to both wired Ethernet and Wi-Fi on your Mac? 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 Mac 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 Use WiFi and Ethernet at the Same Time on a Mac
Step 1: Connect to Wi-Fi
Click the Wi-Fi icon in the menu bar. (If Wi-Fi is off, choose "Turn Wi-Fi on.") Select a nearby Wi-Fi network from the list. Keep in mind, private networks may require you to enter a password before connecting.
Step 2: Connect to Ethernet
Connect an Ethernet cable between your router or modem and the Ethernet port on your Mac. In most cases, you’ll automatically connect to the internet. If your computer doesn’t have a built-in Ethernet port, try using a USB to Ethernet adapter, or a Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter.
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.
