Boost Your Wired Ethernet Connection on Your Windows PC: Combine It with a 4G LTE Dongle

You can get better Internet – faster, more stable – if you combine two connections together. Even if one of them is a wired Ethernet LAN connection.

All you need is a channel bonding (or link aggregation) software app like Speedify. In this article, we are going to walk you through the steps to combine wired Ethernet and a 4G LTE cellular dongle on your Windows PC.

Four Steps to Combine Wired Ethernet and 4G Cellular Dongle at the Same Time on Your Windows PC

Step 1: Install your 3G / 4G / LTE dongle on your PC. 
Connect the dongle through a USB port to your PC. If running Windows 10, it’s highly possible it will automatically set up the connection for you. In order to confirm this, click on the computer / Wi-Fi icon in the lower right area of the taskbar (systray) and check if a “Cellular” tile shows up.

If this doesn’t happen, make sure you run the installer program provided to you along with the 3G / 4G dongle. This may be directly on the dongle – check out “My Computer” / “This PC” for any CD / removable drives and run the setup program. You may be required to restart your PC after setting this up.

Step 2: Connect to the Internet using the 3G / 4G dongle. 
Make sure you run the proprietary software to connect to the Internet, if that exists. Usually it will be detected by your PC as a cellular connection or a Wi-Fi connection.

If you can’t connect, check to see if Windows installed a cellular adapter. Go to Network Connections (Windows key + X – “Network Connections”) and click on “Change adapter options” on the right. The 3G / 4G dongle should be listed there. If it’s not connected, click on “Diagnose this connection”.

If you still can’t connect to the Internet after troubleshooting this, contact your ISP / network provider.

Step 3: Connect your Ethernet cable to your PC and plug the other end into your modem or router. In most cases, you will connect to the Internet automatically. If it doesn’t work, see some troubleshooting options here.
