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

Combining two Wi-Fi Internet connections is no rocket science – it’s actually very simple if you have the right channel bonding (or link aggregation) software app like Speedify. 

On a Mac, you can use the internal Wi-Fi adapter and a USB Wi-Fi adapter. Each of them will connect to a different Wi-Fi network. Using Speedify, you will be able to combine them.

3 Steps to Combine Two Wi-Fi Connections on a Mac Using Speedify

Before we start, here are 2 important notes:

  1. When combining connections, you should use independent internet connections. Connecting multiple times to the same internet connection will usually not improve your speed.
  2. There are some USB Wi-Fi adapters that require an additional software from your USB Wi-Fi Adapter manufacturer. On these occasions, we suggest you get in touch with the USB Wi-Fi adapter manufacturer or refer to your user manual, so you can attain the necessary device drivers. On this example, we are using the Edimax USB Wi-Fi Adapter network manager to connect. This may vary for your specific USB Wi-Fi adapter.

Step 1: Connect your USB Wi-Fi Adapter through a USB port to your Mac. Install the necessary drivers for your USB Wi-Fi network adapter. Some USB Wi-Fi Adapters may require you to restart your Mac.


Once the USB Wi-Fi Network Adapter has been installed, Turn On the Wireless Utility of your USB Wi-Fi Network Adapter.


To connect your USB Wi-Fi Network adapter to an existing Wi-Fi connection, you must choose the right Wi-Fi name of your connection by clicking Connect.


Type in your Wi-Fi Password.


If your Wi-Fi password is correct, you should now be connected to your Wi-Fi using your USB Wi-Fi Adapter via your Mac. There’s a couple of ways to confirm your connection status.

Option 1: By checking your USB Wi-Fi Adapter Manager connection status.


Option 2: By going to Network via System Preferences on your Mac and seeing the Connected status on the left-hand side.


Step 2: Now, make sure your Mac’s built-in Wi-Fi is connected to a different Wi-Fi connection from your USB Wi-Fi Adapter. If you haven’t connected to a Wi-Fi connection yet then you can refer to this article.

How Does Speedify Work?

Speedify is powered by a revolutionary technology known as Channel Bonding. This allows you to use multiple Internet connections simultaneously for their combined speed and reliability. Everything including uploads, downloads, web browsing, gaming and streaming video can be improved by Speedify.


Step 3: Start Speedify on your Mac to combine 2 Wi-Fi 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.

Use Speedify for macOS to combine two Wi-Fi connections togther on your Mac.
