    Definitely bonding works but like some of the posters mentioned, it's not very stable or you don't get an aggregate. Your OS type will determine how stable the network is as well.

    I have tried the Connectify Dispatch but this not free if you can afford this this will be the best one you are searching for to combine the internet connection. And right now Connectify Dispatch is avaible for 7day free trial, But if you are unable to afford this software you can have a look at the Sophos UTM Home edition to combine your internet connections.

    You'll only get a larger bandwidth with connectify dispatch. Your maximum speed would be based on the best connection you're using. In this case, it's effective when it comes to torrenting.

    "Is it possible" as so often the answer is "it depends".

    Remember that the wireless signals are using the same bunch of radio frequencies - not just using but competing for them with other WiFi routers, maybe your neighbours. As a result your aim of 1+1=2 might end up as 1+1=1 : no more bandwidth available.

    What's behind the question is that you want a faster connection.
    The best connection you can get is a cable from the router to the PC, but even then remember you may just be moving to a different traffic bottleneck - the speed of your broadband service. It may even be that your single WiFi connection maxes out what your broadband service can deliver to your router.

    There may be scope for some tweaks you aren't supposed to do that extend the number of frequencies you are using to include ones not permitted in your country. The slight drawback is that it's illegal and you may attract some unwelcome visitors...

    No, it does not work that way. Besides even wireless "G" standard is already faster than home internet services except for maybe Verizon FiOS and Google fiber. So multiple wireless devices, or faster wireless standards like "N" or MIMO will not speed up your internet connection.

    If you want a faster internet connection and fiber is not available or you do not want to purchase a business class service. You could get more than one internet connection and use a router that can bond and load share multiple internet connections.

    I've been using ConnectifyDispatch for a month now to combine two wireless networks,It's quite simple and fast.the software combined the speed of the two adapters in ONE high speed connection.give it a try it's worth it.

      Gonna try ConnectifyDspatch.. you say it actually could combine the 8GB hotspont's speed with the 2GB one.. so one app would be able to use 10 GB instead of just 8.. lets see and ill tell you

    I on the other hand have an different experience. I use one 6Mbit cable connection and two 8mbit wireless connections, using 2 wireless adapters.

    I combine these 3 connections, using a program called Conectify Dispatch. While I don't see much of an improvement while browsing, the maximum download speed (mostly using torrents) is usually the combined speed of alla 3 connections.

    Hello,
    I have stumbled into Connectify Dispatch. (http://www.connectify.me/dispatch/) which according to their website combines different internet connections seamlessly for faster and better internet connection. Check out the video they have as well.
    Hope it helps :)

    The speed of your ISP Internet connection will be the maximum speed attainable.

    You can't really combine or do 'teaming' with wireless signals.

    Basically if you have two wireless connections e.g. one running at 2Mbit and one running at 8Mbit you can balance your traffic across them using software. But overall the maximum speed you will get for a certain task will be the 8Mbit in this example.

    If you are connected e.g.to two WiFi hotspots using multiple wireless network adapters you can use software to force applications to use a specific connection e.g. ForceBindIP or Windows 7 does a good job automatically balancing between the connections.

      Connectify Dispatch only works for downloads with individual threads e.g. Torrents. For a single download e.g. via HTTP or FTP the maximum achieved speed will be the maximum of the line currently used.

      See statement on their website :
      "...monolithic streams like Netflix can’t be split across connections, Dispatch will assign them to the fastest connection - and route other requests to secondary connections."

      Actual teaming (combining e.g 2Mbit + 8 Mbit into a 10Mbit connection) requires support and setup on both, the local end-point (usually modem) and the remote end (provider).
      One example for such would be multi-wire DSL connection (e.g. 2x2 wires, each 4Mbit, combined speed 8Mbit)
