    I have two routers, connecting two ISPs. My Mac wiredly connect to one router and wirelessly connect to the other one. On System Preference I can set Service Order and have my mac switching between them, but I can't find any options to have the two connection work at the same time. Is there any way / 3rd software to let my mac utilize both two ISPs simultaneous? I'm really tired of switching thing.

    It's a complicated process, like which bit of data goes through which connection? Usually whole data connections go through one connection and will switch, never within a connection (a connection means one communication between your computer and another machine). If a connection doesn't complete normally then the whole transmission is usually buggered/discarded.

    That's some of the technicality. Essentially, you can't split up a conversation between two machines without specialised equipment or software. I could go into more detail.

    Unless someone wants to enlighten me.
