How can I combine Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and cellular connections on an iPhone?
Did you know that with Speedify it’s possible to combine your cellular connection, a Wi-Fi connection and an Ethernet connection on your iPhone?
Speedify is a fast bonding VPN that can combine multiple connections on your laptop or smartphone. But more importantly, Speedify detects when one of those connections is weak. Then, it seamlessly transfers your traffic to the other, stronger connection, so you never have to deal with dropped calls and interrupted video again. This technology is called Channel Bonding.
You will need:
- iPhone with a mobile data connection
- Wi-Fi Network or Hotspot
- Ethernet cord & connection
- Ethernet-lightning adapter
Step 1. Verify that you have a mobile data connection on your iPhone, and that you have your data turned on. To do this, tap “ Settings,” then “ Cellular,” and flip the switch on.
Step 2. Connect to a Wi-Fi network on your phone to be the second connection. To connect to a Wi-Fi network, tap “ Settings,” then “ Wi-Fi” and flip the switch on. You can then select a network from the list that appears. Be aware that you usually have to enter a password for private networks.
Step 3. Plug one end of your Ethernet cord into a router or modem and the other end into an Ethernet-to-Lightning adapter or an Ethernet-to-USB adapter plugged into a lightning USB adapter. Then, plug the adapter into your phone’s charging port. Make sure ethernet shows up in your settings to verify that it’s connected. For best results, you should use different upstream networks for your Wi-Fi and Ethernet. These connections should come from two separate routers.
Step 4. Now it’s time to start combining your on your iPhone! Begin by downloading Speedify from the app store if you don’t already have it. When you launch the app, Speedify automatically detects your 2 active connections. You’ll see them contained inside the Connection Bubbles near the top of the Dashboard.
Finally, watch as Speedify combines mobile data, Wi-Fi and Ethernet on your iPhone into one stronger, faster, more reliable connection!
