What types of Internet connections can I use with Speedify?
Speedify can take advantage of almost any internet connection to which your computer is able to connect, including DSL, Wi-Fi, 3G/4G devices, and tethered smartphones. As long as your computer can receive an IPv4 address, Speedify will use it.
If your device or network requires additional configuration (such as running dialer software for mobile broadband networks or logging into captive portals on Wi-Fi and Ethernet networks at hotels or airports) you’ll need to perform the required steps before Speedify can use that connection.
On your smartphone, you can easily combine Wi-Fi and Cellular. Depending on the smartphone, you may also be able to use other connection types (such as wired Ethernet), by plugging a dedicated USB adapter into your phone.
On a computer, here are the most frequent internet connection types you can use with Speedify:
- Wi-Fi: from routers that connect to the Internet via DSL, cable, satellite, fiber; public Wi-Fi hotspots; Wi-Fi tethered phones
- Wired Ethernet: from routers or modems that connect to the Internet via DSL, cable, satellite, fiber
- Tethered phone: either through Wi-Fi or connected directly via USB
- USB network adapters: USB to Wi-Fi network adapter, USB to cellular data network adapter, USB to Ethernet network adapter
