Can I use Ethernet and Wi-Fi connections simultaneously?

hazem elsaiegh March 29, 2013

I have two NICs, one is wired Ethernet and the other is WiFi, and I have two ADSL Internet connections. Would it be possible to use the Ethernet with one connection and only for downloads, while using Wi-Fi with the second connection and only for web browsing? Thanks!

    Yes it's possible and is done by manually setting your subnet and gateway for each connection

    The important thing to note is that all DNS requests will go through the "gateway" address, so only set a gateway for your main(general web browsing) connection.

    Then comes the subnet, which controls who handles connections. If you try to access an address within a subnet, it will route directly through there. If it falls outside of any subnets, it will be routed through the gateway device.

    To customise which programs on windows, it's probably easiest to set up a proxy within the subnet you'd like to use, and tell the program to use that.

    For example, in college I have:




    Gateway: (blank)




    Gateway: 129.941.53.1

    All programs default to Wifi, unless i specify the proxy

    yes you can use two connections a once a long as you are using different NIC. e.g. Wifi + Ethernet + Bluetooth + 3g... but you cant use two connections with only one NIC. You cant be connected in Two wifi at once.

    Yes, you can. You must do load balancing on your network. you can search on google with keyword load balancing, i'am using multi proxy to load balancing with my Broadband , LAN, and wifi at once. or if you want to instantly joining connection use Connectify Dispatch (that's paid software). But i'am recommend to Using connectify dispatch because it can use instantly.

    Try connectify dispatch, it is an awesome paid app. It can combine lots of internet connection to give you one super connection. They are currently offering a 7 free day trial of the software. Take my words for it the software is worth every money you spend on it.

    Windows 7 and 8 do this automatically. You don't need any additional software. You only need forcebindip if you want to specifically force particular applications to use a particular adapter, rather than letting Windows sort it out itself, or if you're using an OS older than 7.

    You can use dispatch, it supports an unlimited number of connections
