Imagine working without interruption. Imagine downloads at incredible speed. Imagine your Internet, faster.

I am excited to announce that with the combined efforts of our entire team, we have created software that links multiple Internet connections together for maximum speed and increased reliability. Meet Connectify Dispatch.

This new, revolutionary software will give you the ability to connect to multiple Internet connections simultaneously. Combine any number of Wi-Fi networks, mobile Internet devices, and other networks, for a single connection that is as fast as all of your Internet connections combined. Even if connectivity is lost on one network, Dispatch will keep you online by seamlessly moving your web traffic onto the working connection until your secondary network becomes available.








The Problem

We all need faster Internet connections — to get our work done quicker, our game on sooner, and access to our downloads as soon as possible, no matter where we are.
Since Wi-Fi networks are popping up just about everywhere, and many of us also carry around mobile broadband devices that offer 3G/4G access on-the-go, we started to wonder: with so much bandwidth available across our networks and devices, why are we still left choosing only one Internet connection at a time?

The Solution

Connectify Dispatch is groundbreaking PC software that lets you connect to all available Internet connections simultaneously.

For the first time, you can connect to the coffee shop Wi-Fi and your 4G mobile device, using both Internet connections for their combined speed, and increased reliability. With Connectify Dispatch, you can even use two different Wi-Fi networks at the same time. Just connect a secondary USB Wi-Fi card (complimentary for $100+ backers), in addition to your laptop’s on-board Wi-Fi card, and Dispatch does the rest. At the click-of-a-button, you’ll be cruising the web at warp speed, using the combined throughput of both wireless networks. Even if you lose connectivity on one of those networks, Dispatch keeps you online, seamlessly moving all of your traffic onto the working connection until both networks become available again.

Connectify Dispatch is especially handy for the millions of BitTorrent users out there. With each Internet connection you add, Dispatch can double, or even triple the speed of your BitTorrent transfers. In fact, the more Internet connections you have, the faster you’ll go!

The last bit about Bittorrent - Milage May Vary! It all depends on the overall health of the torrent. Anyway nothing new to see hear!

Anyone want to buy my new program, ©bull****e, that allows you to combine all snake oil software together to multiply its efficiency?

The duplexing and latency issues alone should set off alarm bells that this is bs

I was looking for software like this, but its essentially bridging, with a few NAT tweaks. I guess I would have to see it work. hardware solutions (servers/routers with double redundancy, Qos, load balancing, failover, etc) run into the thousands of dollars.
The way their kickstarter page discribes it, they don't use a proxy or VPN or anything, so whatever network it goes out on , is the one it comes back. The software will just make the choice based on whatever the load balancing software is seeing at the time. So if you are downloading iTunes from a single Apple server, as usual with HTTP transfers - only ONE connection can do that... One IP can request that file.. BitTorrent is the only program that could send 'bits' of data out over the various networks and get response as it builds the file from the various bits.

The double and triple speeds they state wouldn't be seen on 90% of what people sit in front of their computer to do, 3 'internets' works best with 3 simultaneous requests..

Wow this is pure BS! This software is just

There are free alternatives. Intel do it, Broadcom do it etc etc

Don't most modern operating systems already support this via link aggregation and/or adaptive load balancing?

So your going to be downloading stuff from yourself if you use Bittorrent potentially lol! If you have say 3 different ISP's and then use this software to download one torrent. I would be VERY dubious about what this software claims to do.

That isn't how torrents work my friend. The torrent file breaks your 700MB avi up into a LOT of bits. The client can then request these bits over any of the networks available, simultaneously. Since the client is taking care of all this, it won't redownload from another network the same bit it already downloaded. It'll make torrents faster by what they claim. Not much else.

Yes but on the same network interface type, no?

These idiots are suggesting you can somehow magically combine your, say:

1ooMbit/1Gb - full duplex ethernet
Wireless N - half duplex
3G - simulated full duplex over a half duplex link

And end up with a smoking connection with a combined speed of all three?

Any sane person would just stick with the hard cable

Maybe each one gets a VirtualDriver of sorts to look like an ethernet port - boom, use the existing technology to bridge. the geniuses likely force every network to half-duplex for compatibility.

This is what Load Balancing is. I would be interesting to see how it works with routing on a local network though.

Been possible since Windows 98, I believe.
