I bet you that the number of people who use MiFi adapters and Speedify is FAR less than those who are using VPNs to circumvent geo-restrictions.
So it is quite the way around; the masses are VPN users.
The real evil here is corporate greed and their need to restrict who watches what.
TL;DR: Even worse than the last software bundle. Half of the software is limited to a one year license. But that doesn't really matter since most of the software is either completely unnecessary or has a good freeware/open-source alternative. I mean, WinZip? Really?
The only software worth it might be EaseUS ToDo Backup (since there isn't really a fully featured backup solution that's also user-friendly) and Speedify VPN (although its use case where you want to combine multiple internet connections is really rare).
I understood that. The issue is that if the two access points are on separate networks you’ll be in for quite a bit of pain since you’ll need to somehow split traffic across both pipes without confusing the server at the other end. This can be done by sending all traffic to certain destination IPs through one connection and the rest through the other however this doesn’t exactly balance well depending on your luck.
You could use the (comercial) product called Speedify. I can’t vouch for them but they claim to have a custom VPN which lets them split traffic safely across multiple networks without the issues I mentioned above since they’re splitting VPN traffic and recombining it on the other side in a way that all protocols expect.
T-Mobile one would be $180 for 5 lines of unlimited(video at 480p unless you use a VPN or pay and $15/month/line(when you can use something like Speedify for $15 for 6 months and you have to pay once for 5 users connecting simultaneously).
You get deprioritized after 50 gigs.
128kbps and unlimited texting for free overseas. $0.25 calls. $50/month gets you 15gb international LTE(and unlimited calls and text) for one line. $5/day gets you 500MB international LTE and unlimited talk and text.
Bought myself 1/2 price special MLB TV for Fathers Day - I'm mothering the kid who made my husband a father - I deserve it!
I'm playing around with VPNs, in hopes of cutting cable, but I can't seem to get it to work on my phone. I've tried Speedify, TunnelBear, and Windscribe. None of them seem to be working. I've tried multiple countries.
I'm headed out to my InLaws (no TWCSpectrum). What should I try next?
Worst case, I wait till we get home, pour some wine then watch the archive.
Alex from Connectify, the makers of Speedify. You're right about the free VPNs. We're not one of them, though. We charge yearly subscriptions so we don't need to do any of the creepy advertising stuff that free VPNs do to pay their bills.
Apple devices sometimes are notorious for "sticky wifi" compared to other devices, as the threshold for bad RSSI strength is higher (at least it was the last time I extensively researched the issue).
I've heard about Speedify but never used it, there may be other comparable programs.
Probably going to use a couple for a few network monitoring programs though I’m not sure what yet. I already own one running pihole. Plex media server, vpn server.
one I want to attempt to use as a potable network bonding device (using Speedify) to connect multiple connections to (multiple hotspots and WiFi to use for live streaming
The hifiberry I’d like to setup as a airplay/chromecast receiver.
So far that’s all I’ve came up with. I’m open to all kinds of suggestions as to what I can utilize all these for.
The Unifi Security Gateway products as well as the EdgeRouter products from Ubiquiti can handle this. The basic USG has 3 ports, one WAN, one LAN and one that can be LAN2 or WAN2.
Using nearly any hardware solutions would be round-robin or failover only most likely without getting into anything fancy - but it sounds like you're already aware of that. You can use some software solutions to bridge the connections as a single link, but this requires a form of bonding over VPN. Speedify is a pure software solution which works upto 50Mbit I believe. Peplink also supports this between two Peplink products. One at your home, one in a colo or elsewhere connected to a much faster internet connection. This is really intended for commercial applications and priced accordingly. There are DIY solutions out there but it's going to require a lot more knowledge and time on your part which likely wouldn't be worth it.
Cricket operates on AT&T and they have some issues with closed NAT. I think there was a way to overcome this by routing your cell connection through a PC, but otherwise it isn’t possible with just the normal WiFi hotspot that is available on your phone. It has to do with ATT settings on their end unfortunately... I switched to T-Mobile and hotspot has been working great for splatoon. Sprint and Verizon apparently also work based on what I’ve read; it’s really just ATT and companies that use ATT service.
Edit: this is the workaround I had used to play Splatoon 2 when I was on Cricket. Unfortunately it is inconvenient to need a PC with you to do this, but it was the only way I got it to work. I needed a PC with Speedify and Connectify both installed. Then I USB tethered my phone to the PC and shared the connection using Speedify VPN and Connectify. See if this allows you to get online using cricket hotspot
I’ve been using VPN for 4 months now on an iPhone 8 Plus. They have no way of telling since it seems like I’m sending data to a random corporate server. The thread was about a Samsung device that likely had a software bug. Even sprint which says tethering data is shared with vpn has no way of telling if you use a HIGH QUALITY PAID VPN. DONT USE FREE ONES, I use Speedify which is $3 a month if you buy for 6 months and will work on 5 devices at once. T-Mobile makes you pay $10/device/month so it’s a $47/month difference if you have 5 devices that want to watch HD YT/Netflix.
i've tried that but overwatch disconnects when there's a change in connections :( anyway i've found a free vpn, Speedify. i can play overwatch with pretty good ping (around 20+), took me some time to find since i've tried like 5-6 free vpns which all gave around 300-400 ping so i guess this is the one that works best so far. but since its free, you only get 5gb per month - sufficient i guess. you can definitely give Speedify a try!
So I skimmed the post and didn't see anyone that recommended OpenMPTCProuter or speedify yet. I travel in my rv a lot and also need to work on a decent reliable connection. My setup includes a lte connection for sprint, tmobile, at&t, and 2 verizon connections, that I have bonded together with OpenMPTCProuter. I can bond all my connections together into a single big pipe at my datacenter, and get the most out of all of them.
Speedify does something similar, but doesn't allow you to use your own datacenter without paying extra. I want this option because I want to bond the connections for Netflix streaming, and speedify bypasses their service for streaming or else it gets blocked.
Both options are true bandwidth bonding instead of per session load balancing which you seem to be doing.
That's not how any of this works.
Warning: gross generalizations and layman terms ahead.
There's load balancing and there's link aggregation. Load balancing can distribute multiple transfers across multiple connections. Link aggregation can combine multiple links into a single one.
A target on the Internet has no way of knowing that multiple requests from different sources belong to the same connection. Load balancing won't increase your speed if you're downloading a file or streaming video or doing a speed test.
Link aggregation requires something on the other side to aggregate your links. If you're using regular broadband you can use a service like Speedify to solve this. The VPN on the Internet aggregates your links and then connects to the endpoints on the Internet via a single link.
First download Speedify VPN on your laptop/PC and then download connecrtify. Open speedify and setup a VPN in America or any other country that allows you to play on the casino. Then open connecrtify and create a network via speedify. Go to your ps4 and connect to that network
Real time VOIP communications is difficult without UDP, but you might be able to tunnel it using a paid VPN. These aren't our primary VPNs, but two you might wish to look at are Speedify or the cheaper Edgewise connect. The Romanian VPN company IbVPN also offers Softether and several other protocols specifically designed to break through China.
You also should consider using simplex "deltachat". Not as nice as real time, but it looks like something which would be very difficult to stop.
Some of the XMPP systems are also worth a look.
Then there is Retroshare.
MySudo also might work in your country.
Do you have coaxial cable in your house? I highly recommend looking into a MoCa adapter if you do. I have a Motorola one set up in my house and I get almost no loss in speed or latency.
They cost about $65 each on Amazon, and you'll need at least two, one for the entry point and one for exit point
Otherwise, you can use a service called Speedify, which uses a VPN to share traffic between all your network interfaces. It's a bit hit and miss though, but it has a free trial if you want to test it out.
Só precisas de uma VPN para fazer a subscrição; no meu caso eu usei uma app para o telemóvel pq 90% das VPNs pagas fazem redirect para a netflix dos USA.
Depois podes usar cá sem VPN, todos os meses são removidos aqueles valores de TL (a moeda deles) da tua conta. A conversão deixa o preço super barato. Não sei se muda o catálogo para o da turquia, mas até agora tenho encontrado praticamente todas as séries e filmes que preciso. (Nunca tive netflix portuguesa, não faço ideia se o catálogo é diferente).
No meu caso pago quase 5€ e divido com outra pessoa, ficando a 2,5€/mês a cada. Para quatro pessoas tens que procurar na net o valor que não sei de cor.
Edit: A vpn que usei chamava-se Speedify - Bonding VPN
From my experience, you're going to have to use a proxy/vpn. You can try certain youtube video downloaders and see if they can get past the restriction. For myself, if youtube-dl recognizes that it's blocked in my country, it won't download the video.
Your best bet is to use a proxy/vpn. For myself, I just needed a VPN for a few quick tasks, so I needed something free, and Speedify worked perfectly for that because it doesn't require you to sign up. There's probably better VPNs out there, but I just needed something quick.
Yea but there is risk. Download one of the free vpn software out there (I use Speedify) and change your country to whatever you like. Then login to steam or create another account and buy the game. You can family share from then on. BE warned: I won't be responsible if they ban your account.
speedify removes our packet loss 100%, we have 0-10% from cox to fortnite.
NOW, the problem is, the legality of it. Obviously we aren't cheating but it is a VPN.
Straight from speedify:
> Yeah, we aren't clear on Fortnite's policies. I see some places where Fortnite says it can kick you from games for using a VPN or people complaining their IP address got banned for using a VPN. On the other hand, there are a lot of Speedify users saying they are using it to play Fortnite. I haven't heard of any specific examples of people getting banned from Fortnite for using Speedify, but since Speedify is a VPN, it is a possibility. I'm not sure if the people getting banned were doing something else malicious to trigger the ban. I don't have the full story on any of those cases.
I posted on epic forums, but no responses. The last thing I want is to be banned for trying to have a better connection.
in the last 3 months of fortnite, i have never once seen 0% packet loss for more than a few seconds at a time. Using the Speedify trial, I logged in to a game and saw 0% packet loss for a whole minute. Going to buy it and see how it goes. I don't know much but maybe some common servers cox uses in their hop routes suck and the vpn route avoids those servers? /u/justbilled
Okay... I can understand that not having your own money can be tricky when you want to take extra security measures but don't get, and I repeat do not get free VPN. How do you think their business works? Where do you think they get money from? I'll tell you. Your data. Selling it and exploiting it. Yes, the same data you want to protect. If you don't have money to spare or cannot talk your parents into getting a proper VPN for your and their safety then at least get the one that has free plan alongside to paid ones. I myself had limited amount to spare for a VPN so I am sharing my account with my roommates by setting it up on our router and they paid their 2/3 of the plan that I got from NordVPN but before that we all were using free ProtonVPN plans which was great even if a bit limited. We also used TunnelBear before they sold themselves out and Speedify but it was quite slow (oh the irony).
Just use a VPN (Speedify is an easy set-up), as rugbypass technically doesn't broadcast to Aus, so set as Singapore IP.
Much much less than Foxtel, and no money to Murdoch, plus all European games etc. Very happy camper
I purchased it myself and I've been using it for a week. I had purchased CyberGhost from Humble Bundle last year for $5 for a year and year before that Speedify vpn for $9 for a year. If you keep an eye out for bundled deals like this you never have to pay hundreds of dollars for VPN's.
That's a great point. Comcast deliberately slows down Netflix because getting money from subscribers isn't enough for them.
Hiding your traffic as encrypted unknown traffic with a smaller entity means that Comcast can't put the effort into specifically throttling it. That means your Netflix will come through quicker as they don't know it is Netflix traffic.
I'd use the sliders to pay only for Speedify if you buy this. All that other stuff is a thin layer of shit on functionality that's already provided in the operating system.
edit: Speedify seems slow, maybe too slow for media (i.e. Netflix) tunnelling. If you try to torrent they make you reconnect to a different server. I tried downloading a Linux ISO and I'm getting 1.2MBps vs 3.00MBps on a super sketchy Russian VPN. Still probably worth the beat the average price.
edit: And their redemption method seems to have a huge security hole in it. People could easily redeem for free. They must know that given how obvious the hole is.
Ja, und das wird auch jeder andere anständige VPN.
Allerdings gibt es gerade das Humble Software Bundle mit, neben einer Menge Schrott, einem 1-Jahres-Abo für Speedify für ca. 7€. Es ist etwas schwer zu sagen, ob sie für Torrenting und Streaming geeignet sind, da sie auch selber von sich behaupten, "mehr auf Geschwindigkeit als auf Privatsphäre" zu setzen, aber die Software erlaubt die Auswahl von extra P2P-Servern in den Niederlanden. Ich würde einfach mal behaupten, dass man damit auf der sicheren Seite sein sollte?
If it’s the dumping a tonne of money that’s putting you off, Speedify will do you a bonded link for cheap - but you’ll have to build the hardware side of things yourself. Raspberry Pis with cellular connections etc.
Well there are multiple Bonding VPN Services by now. Entirely software based like Speedify, simple bonding implemented in Routers or a combination of Hard- & Software the likes of Peplink offers.
Speed depends on the location. With consumer LTE Routers I usually get upload speeds between 15 and 60 MBit/s up. Download Speeds improved radically this year. Depending on the carrier and were I'm located at the moment I get can get up to 200 Mbit/s down via a single LTE-A connection. Some carriers are offering unlimited data day passes for a low daily fee.
Opera browser ile gelen default VPN calısıyor direk. Speedify var ama ben beles kullanıyorum o yuzden GB kısıtlaması var ama cok nadir actıgım icin sorun olmuyor. Bunları kullanırken guvenlik garantisi veremem tabi girdigin siteler, bilgilerin vs. calınabilir ona gore. Internetten zaman zaman baska VPNler bulup kullanmıstım ama isimlerini hatırlamıyorum.
Bunların calısması icin driverlarının aktif olup, pcnin izin vermesi gerekiyor. Yuklerken sorması lazım sana. Onun ayarı yapılmadıysa, windows firewall vs. blokluyor olabilir.
For skins I own:
For Emotes I use:
So not very good all in all. Mostly common, a few Uncommon and one Rare.
For 2+ users, I think you can create your own portable server using Raspberry Pi. Speedify has a Linux client, and you can use it to bond the network connections in Raspberry.
All your devices can connect to Raspberry, and Raspberry will then connect to Speedify. Speedify takes care of combining all your network connection.
I want to try it, but I have trouble obtaining LTE shields/HATs since I'm from the Philippines (ie, delivery fees cost more than the item itself).
I've only tried Raspberry Pi with OpenVPN. I used it as a VPN server for my laptop and desktop at home.
As for standout portable modems, I'm still deciding between TP-Link m7650 or Netgear Nighthawk m2. Huawei B818 also looks like a good option for non-portable setups.
Try Speedify. You only get 2GB with free account, but unlike other trial editions ALL servers in Speedify are open for trial users.
So, you can directly select SG server and take a look around. 2GB means you can play for at least 5+ days. If you feel like playing in SEA then you can invest in VPN premium.
I've tried looking for the login info and the Altice website says it lists them, but nothing is there.😅 As far as modem stats go, I'm not entirely sure I follow what you mean. I've done speed tests and have my phone connected to the wifi with an app called Speedify running in the background that tells me if there's any loss or anything like that and the speed is on point. Just keeps randomly disconnecting.
As Mrbeyond13 said in his message, Speedify. It let me download the game just fine.
Start the VPN, login into Steam, start downloading the game and uninstall the VPN, because his job is already done at that point.
I had exactly the same problem and recently solved it. You can install a VPN and hotspot software on a laptop, then connect the Switch to the hotspot. I used Connectify and Speedify which changed the NAT type to type B.
Alternatively you might be able to change the NAT type directly using your router. I wasn’t able to do this as my router is a 4G hotspot router, so it depends
change your region to Russia in settings.
Download the free VPN Speedify, from playstore.
Then connect to the Russian server,
(in Speedify VPN App) choose Moscow, (server) then go to Software update in settings click on update.
Worked for me, hope this helps? 👍
Within the GUI of the USG this will not be possible. Through a JSON file and custom config it will be. I however not expert enough to explain.
I might suggest an alternative solution. Most likely the VDSL connection already comes with its own router. On top I am assuming you are using VLAN aware switches.
Assume the connection is Cable - USG WAN - VLAN aware switch port 1
Choose a separate VLAN ID for the VDSL (VLAN 500 for example)
Connect the VDSL router straight to a port on the switch that you assign to VLAN 500 basically bypassing the USG.
As you switches are VLAN aware, by assigning 1 or multiple VLANs to a switchport both connections are routable. If you now from the Speedify Linux machine connect two lan cables to a VLAN aware switch, you will get an internal IP from the VDSL router and an internal IP from the USG. You can now start doing Speedify.
Na Vivo era 80ms e na NET é 100ms? Acho que pode ser só diferença de rota mesmo. Já explicaram aqui que a NET é meio chata com troca de tráfego, por vezes forçando o tráfego por rotas muito piores por questões contratuais.
Você pode tentar usar alguma VPN com servidor aqui no Brasil. Speedify têm servidores em São Paulo e você não precisa de conta para usar os primeiros 5GB mensais. Vale a tentativa.
I asked around here last week or so, same problem.
I play Overwatch and the game just won’t log in.
As for the VPN, I use the ExpressVPN and the Speedify, play under the America server, both got around 10-20 ping.
Also it’s kind of an issue because the network will block the website if you search for VPN on Google……
1.use dotvpn on chrome to be able to access other vpn sites
2.hotspot has free and premium options free gives you 500 mb per day(Fast), Speedify gives you 5gb per month(meh), I used express vpn before and its fast, good but expensive since you pay for the whole year at once, There's a free option called softether vpn where you have hundreds of city options but its slow and vpns are kinda community made so i'm nit sure if they are trusted
4.No, I've been using it for 7 years and my friends have been too, Nothing happened.
I (Bangladesh) use VPN which auto chose Taiwanese server for fastest bandwidth. I get mostly Chinese, Indian and other Asian players. But I get European players too.
Never tried servers of other countries. Been playing since February. Never had issues. I use free data VPN (5-15GB; Speedify, Windscribe).
Oh sorry, I didn’t realise this. If you are looking into VPN’s only for YouTube, there are many reliable free ones that offer 5GB such as Speedify. I tend to use this one if I go overseas to watch NRL.
you can also keep and eye on . some of their software bundles have paid VPN services in them for almost nothing. I got 1 year of Speedify for like $8 that way. My personal recommendation for VPN's is PIA and ExpressVPN.
Have you tried to additionally install Speedify? I also don't like any additional stuff when things supposed to run smoothly.
Another thing to try is to change the protocol to IPsec or IKEv2.
I assume you did reinstall your VPN already. Sometimes it really helps to reinstall the app and reload your phone.
Sorry if everything above is pretty generic.
Only certain VPN points are blacklisted with Fanatical. A lot of gamers use VPN services that have been Humble Bundled, like Speedify: these are more likely to be blocked. I can use the VPN service provided by my usenet provider with Fanatical to avoid inflated pricing.
I use Speedify VPN and it bonds ADSL+4G together, thats the best speeds I've found
I hope thats what your question meant anyway :)
I usually have 180ms to 220ms to EU servers (from portugal) If I use Private Internet Access VPN and connect to a frankfurt server I have the same latency but if I use the Speedify and connect to a frankfurt server I get 40-70ms so thank you now I can actually play the game
Hi - Cristian from Speedify here. I would strongly recommend you read about channel bonding / link aggregation technology and how it is used in software products. Speedify is a fast bonding VPN that uses that technology to combine multiple internet connections. The fact is that Speedify is helping a lot of people minimize packet loss, even when using a single connection, thanks to its error correction algorithms.
To answer /u/gordegort's question about potential bans from Epic - I would advise contacting them directly.
In this context, it just means that all your internet traffic gets tunneled through their VPN server before reaching its destination on the internet.
It's the only practical way to bond two separate internet connections (like the connection to your local Wi-Fi router and the 3G/4G/5G connection to your mobile data network) together to benefit from the combined bandwidth available from both connections.
So let's say you're downloading a large file and your mobile data connection has 10 Mbps of bandwidth available and your Wi-Fi connection has 20 Mbps of bandwidth available. The VPN server can download the file on your behalf and then send it to your device via your Wi-Fi and mobile data connections simultaneously so that you can now download the file at roughly 30 Mbps rather than being limited to 10 or 20 Mbps (as would be the case without Speedify).
Don't think so, heres my internet speed results:
I live in South San Diego and our area suffers from packet loss when connecting to the AMZN servers (Fortnite uses these servers), however I have remedied the problem by downloading a VPN called Speedify and now I get 0% packet loss and usually 20-30 ping in game so don't think that's the issue. I played with the VPN off and its the same thing.
I actually used a VPN called Speedify and it seems to have fixed the packet loss but I'm still getting these microstutters in all my online games and across all my Pcs at home.
So I'm guessing sure the packet loss is fixed but all Speedify is doing just rerouting it, its still hitting my house but not its rerouted before its sent so I'm not losing any so yea I think I am screwed.
I pull 32Mbp/s (around 4MB/s) here in downtown San Francisco on my unlocked LG something.
I bought the cheapest CDMA unlocked android with a decent battery and use EasyTether or PDANet+ with Speedify to both bond with my WiFi (the occasional network or phone hickup is saved and all my data VPNed). I’ve gone through 32GB so far.
I use Speedify which combines both WiFi and data for more reliability(and speed but mostly reliability since I have gigabit at home) so I haven’t noticed it much but I do have to reset my VPN every day in the morning since it times out at night.
Speedify is a channel bonding VPN that will combine all of your available connections. So for instance on your iOS device it will combine your Cellular and WiFi radios to give you faster reliable internet all with the security of a VPN. You can learn more here . It's available for all major platforms. I'd be happy to answer any specific questions you may have.
I tried this vpn called "Speedify" for a good game or so and had 0% packet loss the whole time based off results of another user that had the same problems from Cox. I got a couple ping spikes so I'm probably going to find a faster VPN. I just tried it out today to see what would happen since I was getting 30%-40% packet loss the whole day. The user did say they have been using Speedify for a good amount of time and found it was the only solution so I believe it should be fine ban-wise.
Feel free to read the other comments in the thread, but in short: It's likely bonding with Speedify. It seems like I need a dedicated PC in order to give all devices the bonded connection.
Edit: Their VPN servers splits the packages up, their software on my PC puts them back together, resulting in higher speed. Maybe not exactly like that, but the end result is much higher speed on everything, including streams from Netflix, Youtube, Steam downloads, single file downloads (tried an Ubuntu dist as example).
It will absolutely affect your internet speed, and depending how far away the server is that you’re connecting to, your ping in some multiplayer games would be so bad it’d be literally unplayable. That said, you’d just have to remember to turn it off before launching a game and you’d be fine.
If you really want a VPN running in-game though, I’d look into services like Speedify that advertise themselves as having fast connection speeds and see if they have a server near you. You’ll still take a hit but it’d be negligible compared to a server hosted on the other side of the country
sorry for this late second part answer but I forgot to mention you that you still can access Primedice via a VPN service. Even a free one will do the job, like Hotspot Shield, Speedify, TunnelBear, ProtonVPN or lots of others.
Hope you'll find one who will suits your needs ;)
As far as I know there's a hardware limitation to what you are trying to achieve , I know of an app that can increase your internet speed by combining WiFi and Mobile data (Speedify VPN ) but take a look at autotools connectivity option in tasks , maybe it might help in what you are trying to achieve .
Hi - Cristian from Connectify here. Per /u/hugburger's point, you can use multiple connections simultaneously with our Speedify VPN service. It's the only software-only solution that does channel bonding. Here's a guide on combining multiple Internet connections you'll find useful:
For your setup, you can set your VDSL connection as "Always on" and your tethered mobile connection as "Secondary" - this way, it'll only activate when there's a need for a speed boost, like YouTube and other streaming video websites.
I also believe <could be wrong>the total data used will be doubled due to the nature of the VPN solution. As an example, for 10 MB of video, a given connection (like your cellular device) would need to send that to Speedify, then another 10MB is used to download the Speedified data.
When you're with VM a VPN might not even solve your problem. I use Speedify and still can't access Piratebay. I had a similar issue with GhostVPN before.
Anyway, I went through this list after the most recent blocking and found a few reliable sites that are working fine (with my VPN).
Try them out:
Yes it's real. I've found that it works best at giving you more consistent speeds rather than faster speeds. At home I didn't notice any increases in speed while using speedify but when I was out and had a crappy signal on either wifi or my cellular data then Speedify helped me have more consistent speeds compared to what I got using one or the other. If you are dealing with really important stuff it also has a setting that allows you to setup redundancy which will transfer the data twice over both connections.
I mainly tried it for the VPN feature but thought that the speed boosting thing was interesting. While it didn't booster my speed ymmv and if you're always in areas with crappy signal then the app may help you have a more reliable data connection. They do offer a trial tho. You can use 1gb of data for free. So I would test it and see how it works for you.
Hi - Cristian from Speedify here. Bonding the 2 DSL lines with other types of connections (cellular, public WiFi, etc.) is something that Speedify can do. The advantage of Speedify is that unlike other implementations, it's the only one available to the general public as a software-only solution, not requiring any special bonding hardware. Plus - it adds security to it, being also a VPN.
So, you can bond all supported connections on a certain device (WiFi + cellular on your smartphones, WiFi + cellular + DSL1 + DSL2 on your computers).
Better yet, if you want to share the secured super-connection with all devices in your household, you can do so with the help of Connectify Hotspot, which can share that via WiFi on any Windows computer - see here:
Speedify/Connectify (the bundle) seem to accomplish this for free, but limited. I'd start there. Speedify will establish the VPN, and Connectify will broadcast the network. I believe they were built exactly for that purpose.
I'm not sure if Speedify will allow you to open ports however. There was a VPN provider, StrongVPN which was paid-for and I'm fairly certain they allowed port forwarding.
Currently I use Private Internet Access (really, really cheap) and they allow a single port to be forwarded.
Hi - Cristian from Connectify here. Per what /u/RemixF mentioned - our Speedify app does link aggregation with VPN security. You can combine any number and type of different Internet connections - Speedify will create one connection to the outside, but, as mentioned above, you are able to set up priorities in order to save on 3G data. Better yet - Speedify will not drop as other VPNs do once there's a connection disconnect. Essentially, the computer you'll be running that onto will always be online with 3 connections from different sources.
So - not sure whether you'll be needing a VM anymore, to appear as different machines...
I use a VPN called Speedify. It was recommended because I was having problems connecting to the SEA servers for Rocket League. My ping has now been reduced from 200 to 40 when playing Rocket League in Singapore. Go figure.
Not every computer is set up to respond to ping requests.
I don't have a Blackberry but when I visit a site in my phone's browser it specifically tells me whether the URL is invalid (DNS failure), or whether the web site isn't responding. Without an error message, and without any specific information from you, it's hard to be specific about a fix.
But maybe using a VPN would help. You'd be relying on the VPN's DNS lookup and network connectivity which should be the same whether you're on LTE or not. I use Speedify for this purpose and it's free for limited usage --- but I assume any VPN would work.
I've solved the issue by using a VPN to do the update and then turned it off and it's working normally the VPN I'm using is Speedify and it's not blocked for me, was previously using TunnelBear but blocked months ago.
Speedify VPN. Has 1gb free. No sign up needed. You can get it from the App Store. Unless your apple account is in China. In which case go to settings. Sign out of iTunes account. Then create a new one and pick another country such as New Zealand. At which point you can access blocked apps.
No. I have two VPNs and Express is one of them. Never had an issue. However just get Speedify VPN. It's free for 2gb of traffic with no sign up needed. Just use it for Facebook while your here and you won't even have to pay for it.
I started using Speedify (have to play through a vpn anyway) and it helped a lot with the rubber banding as it can rescue packets or something. It's in the humble bundle but not long left. Maybe an hour...
Defrag - useless, use the windows defrager.
Revo uninstaller - good program
Backup - don't need an app for that and there are others for cheaper or free.
System care - use CCleaner which is recommended and free.
Driver booster - useless junk that doesn't work or damages your drive.
Speedify VPN - probably junk unless you need a monthly subscription at which point the program should be free. I recommend PIA.
Malware fighter - use Malwarebytes, not whatever this is.
Hotspot - there are hundreds of programs that do this, you can also do it yourself without buying anything.
File recovery - never heard of this program before, and it's not one anyone would recommend.
Winzip - use instead 7zip, it's 100% free and works with every type of compression.
I'll admit I don't know anything about Speedify, but PIA is kinda the go-to VPNs for top tier service and being confident that they aren't selling your info.
Just do your research before using speedify because not all VPNs are created equally.
I can't say anything about speedify, but if you are mostly in the market for a VPN then you can sometimes get lifetime deals on VPN Unlimited or PureVPN
40 bucks is a lot more than BTA on a bundle, but after the 1 year Humble license expires, Speedify would need an annual payment to keep it alive...
going by the comparison table on the page linked by /u/ksryn, VPN Unlimited isn't great.
> One of the softwares actually advertise as "Up to 300% Internet Speedup with Internet Booster".
This is marketing. The truth is that ISPs use their own cache servers for things like youtube and you as the end user end up using the cache server when it is either caching while you watch or is under high usage and you end up sitting there waiting for the video to buffer. Using their VPN gets around your ISPs cache server and you end up at Google's server instead making it faster for you the end user. This is just one example. And yes using any other VPN should also do the trick, but Speedify also offers you the ability to combine connections from multiple ISPs, like cable connections and mobile networks, and available wifi broadening your available bandwidth.
It's an Eagle Cap truck camper, the 1200. My ideal solution would be to build my own trailer, since literally everything built by the RV industry is crap (trim falling apart, creaky bullshit, etc). Google "Leaf House 2" for my favorite bit of inspiration.
My utility situation is almost ready for complete boondocking. Internet I have some large directional LTE antennas and a good cell router (Mofi), combined with a VPN service that does channel bonding (Speedify), which allows me to utilize the combined bandwidth of any nearby wifi networks I can get on.
For energy I'm in the middle of building my DIY solar + battery + inverter setup. My previous job was as a systems engineer for a power electronics company, so I'm eagerly designing my own system on the cheap!
I’m not 100% but let me tell you about our use case.
I use ZOOM for video guests/government meetings and simultaneously set up a call in line with Free Conference Caller (this way my zoom link is not broadcast to the public) I then create a mix minus between the 2 and send the master out to livestream/broadcast
Speedify has not added any noticeable latency
Are you talking about a software+VPN solution like Speedify or do you have a hardware-based approach in mind? I have multiple DSL lines coming into my house and my ISP couldn't bond them. I'm no networking expert, but in my limited research it seemed like you would need something outside of your house to combine the connections and allow you to access the internet as a single IP address. That's what Speedify does, but it's not as rock-solid as it sounds in my experience. Otherwise, the best you could do is split services across networks, such as having a connection to Netflix use network 1 while your video call uses network 2. I think this is what multi-WAN routers do, kind of a round-robin for each connection across the networks with some having slightly more intelligence than simple round-robin. But if your fastest network isn't capable of streaming 4K, then you wouldn't solve that unless through some peer-to-peer streaming service.
My report (not complaints lol).
I'm in NW Oregon at 45.007 and have seen significant downtime today but it's pretty breezy.
Obstructed: 15 mins - I think the wind is causing this somehow, we're usually in the 4 mins range
No Satellites: 10 minsBeta downtime: 49 mins - this is the largest beta downtime we've had since setting up the dish on 11/30
Overall I'm very happy with the service, there is some downtime as to be expected, especially in beta. My biggest pain point is the inconsistent connection during Zoom meetings, I spend 3-5 hours a day on calls for work. I've been using Speedify . com as a bonded failover but it's not perfect either. I typically just change my connection back to LTE for the calls where I can't have any droppage.
I'm looking forward to seeing how much better this gets with the new launches.
Edited: We've been down for the past 15 mins. We have plenty of satellites above us, hoping the wind didn't knock something loose up there.
What are you using to bond and load balance?
I have a few LTE connections I'd like to bond, but found Speedify tended to slow me down more often than not. Considering Dispatch or bonded connections to a VPS...
Ye this really sucks ... I guess they only tested playing the game with fiber lol.
I have NetLimiter actually, but I've never tried limiting vanguard's outbound traffic, so I'll try what you said.
I wonder if limiting it at something above 10 KB/s would maybe help with the ping problem ? Like limiting it at 40 KB/s (40% of 0.8 Mbps) would maybe give you lower ping than the 50-80 ms you're having right now. Maybe it would help with the desync a little bit too.
What I also did to try and mitigate the problem was use Speedify to combine 2 ADSL connections to basically double my upload speed to around 1.5 Mbps. This doesn't solve the issue but it makes it a bit less noticeable. (it does raise my ping slighty by like 5 to 10 ms though, but that's not really a problem)
Maybe by combining both solutions the game can be somewhat playable ?
I'll try that later today.
This is true. My only note about services like Speedify is the fact that they function primarily as a VPN. Depending on the strength of your local connection(s), you could very easily run into bandwidth/latency limitations.
It’s said best on their site. “This Speed Server acts as a middleman between you and the rest of the internet.”
If you can make it work it’s a great option. It’s just not exxaaaaactly what you may be looking for.
I use Speedify, the free version is limited to 2 GB per month but you can pay for unlimited. I rarely use one anyway so I don't really need to pay. Its only advantage over others is that (when needed) you can combine Wi-Fi + 3G/4G to get faster internet, otherwise if you disable this feature it's just a regular VPN.
I spoke with one of their support people a bit ago and she reported that apparently there are still some vestigial differences remaining to be addressed from the merger, one of which being that distinction. I use speedify for it's bonding feature, but literally the only way I can use it for bonding it to pass on the Program to OBS via NDI. Then use OBS to encode and pass it across the Speedify VPN. All while I KNOW LS6 can support bonding, but Vimeo just hasn't bothered to offer that functionality for their flagship service. Meanwhile, we're all paying almost $1k/year for Vimeo Premium...
So on top of a completely normal single-WAN setup, I’d like to essentially route a connection from a secondary ISP to a second NIC on one client, and use Speedify to bond them.
It works fine plugged directly into the second modem, so all I’m really wanting here is to use a network of UniFi switches to act as if a port on one, and a port on another, are just like a single Ethernet cable. Ideally I could also add other clients to this network, but not strictly necessary.
I am currently living rural and have 20 year old att DSL which has a literal bandwidth of 1.5 mbps. I am really hoping starlink will offer good gaming quality because I game a lot and use Speedify to bond connections sometimes for more bandwidth (like with a hotspot). The DSL being wired offers 50-70 ping on average and ping is everything in gaming so I hope Starlink can compete with that, hearing about these drops has me a little worried.
Thanks! I ended up grabbing a 4 after being inspired by your project. I've now got three USB wifi dongles plus the onboard setup. The 802.11ac dongle was a pain to get running. I then figured out how to have different wpa_supplicant files for each one so they each automatically join different networks. I'm using Speedify to bond the connections. This way I can have one connection to the camp ground wifi, and the others joining my cell phones with tethering turned on across carriers. Speed isn't perfect but the Streaming mode of Speedify may come in handy for video calls. I also have Airplay setup and next on my project list is adding temp monitoring with homebridge and homekit. Thanks again for the inspiration and posting your setup. Looking forward to seeing where your project gos. Good work!
We're offgrid on our boat. Our usage is more like an RV than an offgrid home. I still work, so I need to stay online. The Admiral (the lady) has higher Internet usage than I do. We need about 200GB per month. We have a Ubiquiti Bullet wifi amplifier that is occasionally useful. We mostly rely on cellular data. An amplifier and an antenna on the mast give us 24+ mile range. We get SIM cards from whatever country we are in. Google FI unlimited is 22GB and then $10 per GB. Digicel in the Caribbean is $30 for 12GB and then $3 per GB. It gets expensive. Having a router like necker47's Pepwave simplifies things; we do the "Which router are we on?" I run Speedify to bond channels for higher speeds
r/starlink/? Oh yeah, as soon as possible.
multiple network interfaces = multiple ways to connect your device to the internet, like multiple ethernet ports, or one ethernet port + WIFI, or one ethernet port + WIFI + USB network adapter, WIFI + integrated LTE modem, etc.
Do you have a tethering data plan on your phone and does your employer allow you to use a VPN while in meeting? On your computer you can bond your phones cellular connection with your home wifi with a VPN called Speedify, that way the data seamlessly switches over when one connection drops, it can be set to favor the wifi for data usage and only use your cellular connection during repeated packet drops or as failover when the wifi router gets turned off.
What's "ridiculous speeds"?
Comcast has reserved a portion of the available capacity to handle the occasional communication however it advertises on the 2.4GHz band - which is likely the same band that many of your devices connect through and which is likely already congested.
In addition, Speedify determined that the devices are using extra power when advertising/utilizing the secondary public network. Pennies to you over the course of a power bill, but still your pennies. (Incidentally, you can apparently use Speedify to communicate over both your connection and the Xfinity public one for increased speeds - I have no experience here so YMMV)
If you think it helps your neighbor, go ahead.
Load balancing and bonding are NOT the same thing. Speedify is good for a local machine bonding but maybe not the whole network. Load balancing routers are not that expensive but getting a router that will bond it is VERY expensive - as in $3000+ even used on eBay. If you go with Peplink, you need to buy a router that supports SpeedFusion (watch YouTube). While this is possible, you will need to get something like the Peplink Balance 580 in order to get the most out of it. Otherwise a connection of 150Mbs per dish will capped at a much lower speed. Also, when you use a true bonded connection (software or hardware) your data is then sent through a VPN. That's not a bad thing... unless you like to stream and in that case VPN's are blocked. But you can have your TV's connect directly to one of the single connections. I do all of this so that's my experience.
Yes, use Speedify. Make sure you search discount codes, I think I pay 35 for a year. I bond 2 "meh" connections that are around 3mbps each so streamings not so bad. In theory you could bind as many connections as you want, but you need a wifi adapter for each.
I've been using a VPN called Speedify that claims it will use wifi and data to maximize speed and to back the other up in case one drops off or dips out for a second. For me it seems to play better when using the vpn. No sponsorship, just a suggestion.
Oh. Yeah. That’s not enough. But you can try bonding the connections with Mushroom . An expensive solution would be a Teradek Cube 700 Series, stream to core cloud in h265, have core cloud transcode it and restream to Facebook. The Cube will let you bond the hard line, a 4G modem, and a bunch of iPhones, all at once.
Do you have a recommendation for something better?
I'm seeing it all depends on which one of their servers you connect to. Also, sometimes I get a 75% reduction on download, and a 400% boost on my upload. Other times I get a 75% boost on both.
I do though see a 90% reduction on both when I stay connected to a server for longer that 8 hours.(Testing DL speed from San Francisco connected to Speedify in Freemont)
Well I don’t what else to say,
But Speedify has a 50gb monthly free vpn ,
It also has many servers in different countries, i use it cause some social media websites are blocked in my country,
The free 50gb data should be enough just for gaming though a month though
Not exactly. Speedify has multiple modes.
If you have two unstable connections it can send each packet to the Speedify servers twice. One time through each connection. The Speedify servers determine for each package, which one arrives first, and pass that package on to the final destination. For downloading it does the same.
This method uses twice the bandwidth you normally use but has the potential to combine two less stable connections to one stable connection with a list ping than you'd normally get in average. I used it for important Skype calls by combining terrible WiFi with a bad 4g connection and it worked miracles. When one of the connections temporarily dropped, my Skype call could just continue. This would also work well for cloud gaming.
You can also use Speedify to increase your internet speed, again by combining connections. But these connections need to be relatively stable. Here your argument is true. It would give you the lowest ping of both connections.
