With both connected I am getting this; I thought you could only have one connected?:



With just wifi or the network card I am lucky to get 2 Mbps.

You can have both connected, sure. Heck you could go hog-wild and connect Bluetooth too. these are hardware connections.

The question is where the data is flowing. IIRC the mac will pull from the biggest pipe the data you want.

Though I wouldn't be surprised if Apple has multiplexing going on now.

I keep my WiFi connected on both of my MBs and they both use the internet through the WiFi.

I also keep both connected through ethernet. When I want to transfer files or use home sharing, both computers know to connect through the ethernet.
