How To Combine Ethernet And Wi-Fi Internet Connections

Increase your Internet bandwidth and get lower latency

Setting up your Mac or PC to use Wi-Fi and Ethernet at the same time is a very simple task. In fact, any computer running Windows 7+ or macOS 10.10+ can connect to any combination of available Internet connections. In most cases, setting up multiple Internet connections on your computer doesn’t even require any extra hardware.

If you’re trying to connect multiple Internet connections for faster speeds, note that your various connections must come from different Internet sources. For example, Wi-Fi and Ethernet networks that are connected to the same router cannot be combined for increased bandwidth using channel bonding applications, because they both share the same upstream network.

Are you connected to the Internet via Ethernet and also have a different Wi-Fi connection from a public hotspot or your neighbors? See below how to increase your bandwidth and lower your latency with no extra fees to the providers.

Step 1: Connect Your Ethernet Cable

Find your PC or Mac’s ethernet port and connect the Ethernet cable. If your computer doesn’t have a built-in Ethernet port, you can use a low-cost USB-to-Ethernet adapter.

Step 2: Connect Your Computer to Wi-Fi

Just connect your Mac or PC to Wi-Fi like you normally would.
