Connect to Two Wireless Networks at the Same Time? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Where I live, my ISP is so retarded that the higher you go in speed, the more you pay per KB!!! Every other company I know of (be it cell phone or internet), you get more bang for your buck the higher plan you choose. Because of this, 2 medium plans joined to yield the same speed as the top plan would be way cheaper if it could be done. I did tons of research and, from what I read, there are routers that could do it but they are really really expensive so I just gave up.

If you want more than 2 bars, I would suggest having your neighbors and your router flashed with DDWRT firmware and set his as access points while yours be set as a bridge or reciever. You can even have it set so your router catches the signal and you connect your computer with a ca.

This would give you more signal strength, but latency will always be an issue over wireless.

I doubt windows can do it, but in linux you can specify what traffic gets routed over what interfaces (eg. traffic to server over direct ethernet link and everything else is routed through the main link)

Edit: Use this command on Windows: "ROUTE ADD 10.10.10.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1"

So "ROUTE ADD [game server ip] MASK 255.255.255.0 [router ip of low latency net]"

Important: "On a Windows machine, you'll have to create a batch file with the necessary ROUTE ADD commands and place it in the Windows StartUp folder so that it can be executed each time Windows starts."

See this page

Hope that helps smile.gif

PS: I've personally never done it on windows.

What would be better is to route by port not destination ip, but that's harder (but doable in linux smile.gif )

What you might consider is setting up a proxy server like squid on the faster network. Then you can have all of your HTTP or other traffic over the faster link but leave your default route on the slower network to support other services like gaming or VoIP without having to add an additional route argument for every server.

I have to do this at work since my phone tether is like 6x faster than our crappy dual T1s. If you use different browsers like chrome vs firefox you can also actually set the proxy settings on one and leave the other to simply go out the default gateway as well.

Wow. That's one godly phone tether.

For anyone that is reading this thread in the future, check this page out that I found while doing some research:

I'm not sure if this would work, but you can change the priorities of your NICs in Windows.

Network Connections (ncpa.cpl) -> Advanced -> Advanced Settings -> Adapters and Bindings

And put the NIC you want to prioritise at the top. You could switch them every time you want to game, or browse (since I don't think you browse and game at the same time). It wouldn't use different NICs for different applications but it could be a partial solution.

...or he could just buy a cheap wifi extender.

My one cost me £10 (~16CAD) - so it's not going to break the bank and would be far better suited than flashing his routers firmware just to bridge to routers together.

I'd also say maybe get a Repeater and see what type of Routing Hardware he has.
Also see if he might be limiting your connection and apply QoS on the Router if needed which might help if everybody is doing that.

I was planning that myself with my neighbour as I have Teksavvy / Rogers Extreme Cable 28/1 for 46 dollars a month.for 300GB.
Thinking if i shared the connection with my neighbour so it would be 14 megabits on each side and paying 62 dollars a month for the unlimited plan and splitting it.

If you're not stuck with a stubborn neighbor, it's totally worth it!

My friend did this in the past with win98 in the 56k days ...we would bridge two modems to get higher d/l's for gaming...I am wondering the same. I have a friend that lives between a starbucks , McD's and a Burger King. He just wants to surf the net and I figure why pay for the internet?
