How To Combine Two Wi-Fi Internet Connections on Mac & PC

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

If you're trying to connect to 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

First, 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. After you have plugged in the USB Wi-Fi adapter and installed its drivers, you should go to your Network Connections and connect to another wireless network on your PC. On a Mac, this can be a little tricky, because macOS does not natively support external adapters. You'll have to install a third-party 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 can combine them for faster and more reliable internet. This is where  Speedify comes in. Speedify is a cloud service for Mac, PC, and mobile users that combines all the internet connections available to your device 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; you will see these in Connection Bubbles at the top of the Dashboard. You are now using both for their combined speed and reliability--and experiencing the magic of Channel Bonding first-hand! 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.
