How To Combine Two Wi-Fi Internet Connections

Setting up your Mac or PC to use two or more Wi-Fi connections at the same time is a very simple task.

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 like Speedify, because they both share the same upstream network.

STEP ONE: CONNECT TO YOUR PRIMARY WI-FI NETWORK

Just connect your Mac or PC to Wi-Fi like you normally would using your computer's internal Wi-Fi card.

STEP TWO: CONNECT TO YOUR SECONDARY WI-FI

Since most computers today only come equipped with a single Wi-Fi card, you'll need to purchase  a low-cost USB Wi-Fi adapter to connect to a secondary Wi-Fi network. Once you plug in the USB Wi-Fi adapter, you should be able to choose and connect to another wireless network from the connections pane on your PC. On a Mac this can be a little tricky, because macOS does not support external adapters natively. So you'll have to install a third-party wireless manager. For this FAQ we decided to use  BearExtender WiFi Adapter and wireless manager. Once both adapters are connected to separate Wi-Fi networks, you're ready to go!

STEP THREE: COMBINE TWO WI-FI NETWORKS WITH SPEEDIFY

Now that you have both Wi-Fi networks connected to your computer simultaneously, you might want to combine them for faster and more reliable Internet. This is where Speedify comes in. Speedify is a cloud service for Mac & PC users that combines all the Internet connections available to your computer to create a single fast super-connection.  To get started with Speedify, simply follow this link to download the installer.  

Speedify automatically detects the two Wi-Fi connections and draws them each in a "bubble" near the top.   That means you're using both for their combined speed and reliability.  At this point, Speedify is bonding your two connections!  Browse through the panes at the bottom to see graphs and statistics on how Speedify is using the connections.

And that's all there is to bonding two (or even 10!) Wi-Fi connections together.
