Connect to Multiple Ethernet Connections Simultaneously on Ubuntu Linux and Combine Them for Better Internet
Combining two Ethernet connections may seem like rocket science, but it’s actually quite simple if you have the right channel bonding app like Speedify.
In this guide we'll show you how you can use your Ubuntu Linux computer's internal ethernet port and a USB ethernet adapter to connect to two different networks and then use Speedify to combine them.
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 Two Ethernet Connections on Ubuntu Linux Using Speedify
Step 1: Connect your Ethernet cable to your Ubuntu Linux computer
Step 2: Connect your USB Ethernet Adapter
Connect your Ethernet Adapter to a USB port on your Ubuntu computer then connect an ethernet cable to it and your modem, router, or wall plate.
Your Ubuntu computer will start using your Ethernet connection and you should see it in the system menu listed as “USB Ethernet” or "Wired Connection."
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.
