Question Multiple wifi connections

Just out of curiosity, I have built in wifi that is connecting at 65%, and a wifi dongle that is connecting at 70%. Does that mean I'm doubling up on bandwidth at 135%, since both connections are active at the same time?

I don't think so. You would not be able to exceed the bandwidth provided by your wifi access router. Additionally I believe only one of the two connections would be used at a time for internet access.

OK. Thank you. I though somehow the two adapters would be paired up and I would approach the maximum my router is capable of. Wishful thinking I guess.
