Can I use two mobile Internet dongles at once to improve speeds?

kumar raja October 28, 2012

I have 3G Tata Docomo and Idea 2G dongle. I am not happy with the speed. Can I use two dongles at a time to improve speeds? Is there a problem with this?

    My friend had done it and it did not improve the speed.Sometimes it used 3G signal and sometimes 2G.

    A very interesting question. Actually there is currently a project under Kickstarter from Connectify for this very purpose known as Connectify Dispatch. More details of the program is at

    It will certainly 'not' work.
    Theres no way to distribute traffic between two dongles

    i think it is not possible you can only connect to 1 dongle at a time. i have not yet tried. you try if ti works well keeps good speed

    you can do so but by default the system will use the internet connection whichever has higher priority in preference . so ultimately it would use only one of your dongle

    go to connection search on " use multiple network wi-fi "

    You can use both of them together, but this will not increase your overall speed. It is strange but the thing is that you are actually connected to two separate networks and this could even lead to problems while surfing or downloading.

    But one should try to experiment. Try it and let us know what happened! :)

    A computer will only use one internet connection at a time for a link, you won't get any speed increase.

    Actually no you cannot because you cannot have tow connections active at once, that would cause more problems than benefits.

    The only way this could be made to work efficiently without causing a ton of routing issues would be to have a shim in your TCP/IP stack that would route connections from some apps to one dongle and connections for other apps to the other dongle. I don't know of any that currently do that. Multihomed internet connections generally cause far more headaches than resulting in cures for what you believe ails your system.

    As far as I am aware, it would cause more problems than benefit. What are you trying to download as 3g is fast enough for all but video?
