Is there an easy way to connect to two wifi networks under linux and bind them together to get increased internet speed?

Say if I was in the city and could connect simultaneously to two free wifi sources.... or if my neighbour wanted to lend me his internet... :)

It’s called multi-wan. There!’s a few openwrt programs to not only make it happen but to get the most from it.

Its important to know before you start that 5Mb + 5Mb != 10Mb. Multi WAN gets you more speed for more tasks, but doesnt make a single connection any faster. So the likes of BitTorrent might be faster but pulling a disk image from MSDN will be the exact same speed.

It does if your WAN was the bottleneck for the speed to begin with... :)

You'd think they'd let you download faster...
