Dual Internet connections

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have arizona.edu serving my Ethernet service and UAWiFi serving WiFi internet. I get individual IP addresses while on either one, but my computer will not let me connect to both at the same time

Reason being that when using things like downloads, I want to run them on WIFI since its faster

Ethernet is @ half duplex so its really slow sometimes, Stuff for like web browsing or lighter games

I have done some reading about this. While I am no expert I was unable to find a way to do merge internet connections without extra equipment, like a "load balancing hardware".

You may be able to set network affinity of programs to separate ethernet connections to get that to work though.

It did not work for me.

Good luck, hope this points you in the right direction.

Thanks for the reply, Do you know of any kind of software that does this? Also what kind of load balancing hardware are you talking about? I dont see why it needs to be hardware for it to work?

I've looked into this too, the only option is to either get a load-balencing router (~ $100 newegg), or set up a linux box. Windows is only designed to use two connections for redunancy, in case one goes down it will switch to the other it seems (IE you can't download with one and game with the other).

Do you have an old computer you dont use? Can you get one free?

Good.

Now, get a two or three 10/100 ethernet card for it. Usually free/shipping I have a few..

Install a linux router distrobution. I have used smoothwall. You configure them like a normal router- through the network and a web browser- using a monitor ONLY to install it.

I THINK smoothwall can do what you want, If not try IPCop. And you get a super secure internet connection out of this. Total cost: Free-$20


Hope that helped! Remember- especially with linux, google is your friend.

Okay well I am in a college dorm and extra hardware is hardly an option in terms of another computer.... I have my dad's old celeron that does nothing but I have no room for such a thing here

:/ maybe some day

As crazy said, Windows is not coded to user 2 internet connections, It simply can't "balance" it's useage across 2 at one time. Linux can, load balancing routers can, etc, but not a windows PC... You have ur dads celeron... as in the proc, or an old celeron PC ur not using? If so you could use the celeron box as a hardware firewall, it would run both connections, and balance your use across both (just like piper said). If not you're kind stuck. You can often find old laptops dirt cheap (like $50.00). An old P3\\P4 could easily run smoothwall for you and take up virtually no room.....

try a smoothwall live CD. Built to run on much simpler systems. The cellery should run Ubuntu no problem.
