4g Sprint and DSL

I have a 4g sprint card and a DSL connection. I want to pool them together. Each is currently at around 6megs I want to be able to get 12 megs combined. How do I do this?

Also unrelated, anyone aware of a way to plug a 4g sprint card into an IPhone (tried searching for adapters couldn't find it)

Thanks

First: Not really. Your PC can only work with one ISP at a time given it can only take one IP at a time for Internet connections. Unless you had dual LAN and some hardware specific LAN bonding software, not going to happen.

Second: No. Impossible on two fronts:

1. Hardware incompatibilities and Apple's products are locked tighter than a virgin with a chastity belt in the 16th century.

2. Sprint's 4G is WiMax (otherwise known as IEEE 802.16e). AT&T's 4G is HSPA+. Verizon's 4G is LTE. The baseband chip in the iPhone (AT&T or Verizon) wouldn't know how to handle 802.16e even if a WiMax card WAS introduced to it. The baseband chip is hard-coded with no chance of modifying it.

If there's one thing I know more than Windows 7, it's cell phone signal tech.

Cool. Thanks for the info. Basically, the only way I can get 4g speeds on my Iphone is to get a windows 7 laptop connect the 4g card to it, install connectify. Create personal hotspot then connect with iphone.



A lot of work.

Thank you,
