How to combine two Wifi Connections to get a faster Internet
You have more than one active internet connections and you are using only one at a time, while the other is resting? Don’t let it be lazy. Combine them all to get combined internet speed. Say you have two connections of 1 Mbps each, you just can make 1+1=2. This can work regardless of the type of the connections, i.e. it may be wired, wireless or mobile communication.
Method 1 of 4: Combining LANs
- Turn everything on your computer, modems (in case of DSL).
- Connect them on the relative ports.
- Establish Connections. Dial or do whatever you need to do to establish an Internet connection and test each one by one separately. If all good proceed to the next step.
- While each one is active and connected, navigate to the “Network Devices” folder of your computer. It usually stays under control panel.
Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, press Windows D to navigate to the desktop, and the rest is the same as windows 7 below.
For Windows 7 and Vista, Click the network icon on the task bar-> then click \ Open Network and Sharing Center\ . Then click \ Change Adapter settings\
- Review the Connections. Review the window showing all of your network connections.
- Drag and select. Drag and select Active LAN (Wired, Wireless or DSL Modem) connections.
- Right, click on one of the selected-> click “Bridge Connections.” Then wait and a network bridge with different icon will appear. You might have to provide administrative right.
Method 2 of 4: Load Balancing
If you connect 2 internet connection to Windows at a time, the operating system automatically selects one connection as primary and uses others as as failover connection mode. You can force Windows 7, 8 to use both connections simultaneously using a simple trick.
- Open Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings
- Go to properties of any of your active Internet connection whether it be LAN, WiFi or 3G/4G.
- Select Internet Protocol TCP/IP Version 4, Open its properties, then go to advanced.
- Uncheck the Automatic Metric and type “15”.
- Repeat same steps on other Internet connections you want to combine.
- Restart your Computer.
