Channel bonding can be accomplished via Ethernet or WiFi connections. The network’s transmission channels, which are normally 2.5GHz channels from two distinct networks, are bonded. A user connects to the same network as before, but with the channels connected, the connection is faster.
A computer cannot perform channel bonding. It makes no difference whether you use a Mac or a Windows computer. CB is determined by elements that have nothing to do with computers but everything to do with the structure of your network.
Your router/modem must support multiple upload and download links from a single connection in order to channel bond. Look up its specifications online to see whether it does. If your router doesn’t allow channel bonding, you’ll need to upgrade to one that does.

Supported network cable
Your Internet service provider (ISP) must also offer channel bonding, which means it must be able to provide you with several upload and download links over a single connection. Most ISPs can give several links for an additional fee.

Network and modem compatibility
Both the network and the modem must allow CB on an individual level, and their configurations must be consistent with one another. If you want to know what your ISP’s channel bonding requirements are, ask them. They’ll tell you how many download and upload channels it supports and makes available over your connection.
The next step is to see if your router supports those channels.
Advantage of Channel bonding
A network link is capable of receiving and transmitting data across many networks. The 2.4GHz network is used by the majority of users. At peak times, channels might get crowded, which is where CB comes in. It lets users to send data over all accessible channels at the same time, rather than just one. During busy hours, this gives you a faster connection or a more steady and constant connection speed.

Do I need CB?
Channel bonding isn’t something you need to have. End users can get by with just a fast internet connection, but if you want to watch HD or 4K content from Comcast or Xfinity, you’ll require CB.
