Use Both Your Mac’s Wi-Fi and a 4G LTE USB Dongle at Once for Faster, More Stable Internet
If you’ve got slow and unreliable Wi-Fi Internet on your Mac, get a 3G / 4G LTE cellular USB dongle. But don’t just use that connection alone – combine Wi-Fi and 4G on your Mac simultaneously. 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 Wi-Fi and a 4G LTE dongle on your Mac.
3 Steps to Combine Wi-Fi and 4G at the Same Time on Your Mac
Step 1: Connect the 3G / 4G LTE dongle through a USB port to your Mac. Open Network via System Preferences on your Mac and Create a New Service by clicking the + icon.
A New Service popup will appear; under the Interface drop-down, choose your 3G/4G/LTE dongle and click Create.
On the left-hand side, your 3G/4G/LTE dongle should show a Connected status; this means your Mac is now set up to use your 3G/4G/LTE dongle. If you still can’t connect to the internet, you may need to contact your ISP/cellular network provider.
How Does Speedify Work?
Speedify makes your internet secure, stable, and fast with the magic of Channel Bonding--but how?
- First, Speedify establishes a connection to one of our Speed Servers in the Cloud. This acts as a middleman between you and the rest of the internet, keeping your web activity private and secure.
- Next, the app works with the Speed Server to intelligently spread network packets among all your available internet connections.
- And presto! Speedify is able to provide the combined speed and stability of all your internet connections—unlike any other VPN on the market.
Step 2: Now, connect your Mac to your Wi-Fi connection. If you haven’t connected to a Wi-Fi connection yet then you can refer to this link.
Step 3: Start Speedify on your Mac to combine the Wi-Fi and 3G/4G/LTE dongle connections. When you launch Speedify, the software automatically detects the two connections. You will see them each contained in a Connection Bubble near the top of the Dashboard.
And presto! You’re combining connections with the magic of Channel Bonding for improved speed, reliability, and security. You are now free to go forth and browse the internet, stream videos, and use your apps as you normally would.
