Hello Experts,

I have 2 wifi adapters on my laptop. Is it possible to make both adapters connected to the same AP to share load or balance load? If so which application/hardware do you recommend for this case?

Thank you.

This sounds like NIC Teaming and is only available if the manufacturer has released a specific application for those NIC's or you are using Windows 2012 which is the first Windows OS to natively support the teaming of NIC's.  Windows 2012 is a server OS though.

The answer is no.  Only one NIC can talk at a time.  NIC teaming doesn't exist for Wireless NICs.
