Chances are, your laptop's wireless card has a "disable on wired connect" feature configured as a default. In Windows 7 Control Panel, launch Network and Sharing Center, click "Change Adapter Settings", then right-click the wireless adapter you're using and left-click "Properties". On the Networking tab of the Wireless Network Connection Properties window, click "Configure". That will display the properties window of the wireless card. Click the "Advanced" tab and see if there's an option for "Disable on wired connected" or similar language. If there is, and it’s enabled, disable it.

This might be a little late, but yes you can do that, you need a Cisco router though...

Cisco routers are able to make two connections to one device, what you're looking for is either unequal cost path load balancing, or equal cost path load balancing. The router will transfer the data through both connections, if you want maximum speed you're best bet is getting a Cisco Gigabit router with wireless-N, or wireless-AC. Hope this help

you should bridge the connections.

  1. On the Windows 7, click on the Windows icon. Type view network connections and press Enter.
  2. Identify your Ethernet connection and your wireless connection. The Ethernet connection is called Local Area Connection and the wireless connection is called Wireless Network Connection.
  3. Click on Local Area Connection to select it.
  4. Press and hold the Ctrl key and click on Wireless Network Connection to select it. Now you should have both connections selected.
  5. Right click on the selection and select Bridge Connections.

Since you are using a laptop, make sure that the wireless switch is turned on. (If your machine has one, it will probably be located on the side or back of the laptop.) This is a common gotcha.

There is no point to doing this since you will only be connecting twice to the same end router with the same WAN bandwidth. The fact you have 2 connections might increase redundancy but is pointless in a household environment.

Secondly, Windows does not know how to manage 2 connections simultaneously. For example, to establish a connection to a website you must perform a 3-way handshake before data is transferred using packets which contain the destinations mac address. Your router will send to the same interface which requested it because that's where the application layer (Windows) will expect the specific packet to arrive.
