    Lightbulb MultiConnect for linux

    Is it possible to combine two or more network connection as one? and thus increase the bandwidth. I have heard of MultiConnect for windows-

    This is called "bonding" and e.g. on servers with multiple interfaces we do that all the time.

    http://www.howtoforge.com/network_bonding_ubuntu_6.10

    Those instructions are for an older Ubuntu release but still valid.

    Debian instructions (should be valid for Ubuntu as well):

    Detailed instructions from the Ubuntu wiki:

    Thanks for the reply, I shall check those out. Does it cover using multiple GSM modems?

    Re: MultiConnect for linux

    Thanks again- but I am afraid it is only applicable with ethernet--

    That's the idea.

    What are you trying to achieve? Bonding Internet connections (because that's technically what you are trying to achieve here it seems?) is quite more complex ....
