How do I combine three (or more!) Ethernet connections on Mac?

With Speedify, it’s easy to combine three or more Ethernet connections on your Mac. In this article, we are going to walk you through how to do it. For best results, make sure that the networks you use come from different sources. In order to bond the connections they need to come from different sources, you may need to purchase one or more USB Ethernet adapters (prices start at under $20). 

NOTE: macOS or OS X can be restrictive. Some users will find issues adding connections to their mac. In these cases, get in touch with your network adapter manufacturer for further support.

Step 1: Connect to your first Ethernet connection. Some newer Macs come without an Ethernet port, so you will need to use either a Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet or a USB-to-Ethernet adapter. Once you have connected your Ethernet cable to your laptop, plug the other end into your modem or router.

In most cases, you will connect to the internet automatically. 

Step 2: Attach your second Ethernet connection by following the same process, keeping in mind that if you hope to see a speed boost, it needs to come from a different router/modem.

Step 3: Combine connections by turning on Speedify. When you launch Speedify, the software automatically detects the Ethernet connections. You will see them each contained in a Connection Bubble on 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.
