Combine 2 internet connections on Vista PC
Hi. My Windows Vista PC is connected to 2 different networks. One wired and
the other one wireless. Both of them have internet. Both of them are
connected but the slower one (wireless) sometimes says "Local Only", but when
I disable the wired one, the wireless says "Local And Internet" and I still
have internet then like it's supposed. Is there a way (configuration in
windows or any software) to combine the 2 connections, so I get a higher
bandwidth or it shares them or uses both in any kind of way. Maybe load
balancing? Now it's only using the wired one all the time. And I want to use
the wireless also. Combine them or something that both will be used equally
and at the same time. Thanks everyone.

Re: Combine 2 internet connections on Vista PC
Have you setup two gateways on you computer? Posting the result of ipconfig /all may help.
