Connect to Multiple Wi-Fi Networks Simultaneously and Combine Them for Better Internet

Combining two Wi-Fi Internet 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 PC's internal Wi-Fi adapter and a USB Wi-Fi adapter to connect to two different Wi-Fi 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 Wi-Fi Connections on a PC Using Speedify

Step 1: Connect to a Wi-Fi Network

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 2: Configure and Connect your USB Wi-Fi Adapter

Connect your Wi-Fi Adapter to a USB port on your PC. Windows will automatically detect the device and if necessary attempt to install the proper drivers for it. If you're using an older version of Windows, you might be prompted to search for drivers and install them. Please follow the manufacturer's instructions in this case.

CONNECT TO A WI-FI NETWORK

Click on the Wi-Fi symbol in the lower right corner of the taskbar (systray). If your PC also has a built-in Wi-Fi card (or if you have multiple USB Wi-Fi cards connected) you should now see a drop down menu at the top of the dialog. Choose your new Wi-Fi adapter then select your desired Wi-Fi network from the list.

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.
