It won't enhance your speed. You need to contact your ISP for that.

nope


If you want better signal, ether move the router or pc to a better location or get a 9-12dBi antenna for your wireless card.


you can only use one connection at any given time unless the board features a 'ganged' option but thats usually for LAN and not wifi

I thought you could. I do it all the time when testing nics and routers. I have connected 2.4 and 5.0 at the same time. Even two 2.4 at the same time. Not that you gain much but it will connect both with W7. USB + internal.

Realistically WiFi is only 10% of a wired conection. AC should be better but the best Ive seen is 25 MB/s with a two AC routers Ive tested but wired is 4 times that
