Bonding 2 Wireless Internet Routers

By pittman_jeff ·
Thank you in advance for everyone's comments.

Here is the deal. I have a wireless PCI NIC Card for my PC and a wireless Internet Router connected to my cable "Modem" at home. WEP config'ed and network is pretty locked down.

My system can detect my neighbors AP ( that is WIDE OPEN ) with a pretty good signal strength.

Now my question is. With my neighbor's permission, is it possible for me to by 2 wireless NIC's ( 1 for each AP ) and bond them together to increase total bandwidth for web surfing and possibly create a community hot-spot?

Again, any links, comments and details would be greatly appreciated.

If you set up a network bridge inside the PC, sure you can.

So far. I have wired the PC to my wireless router through the ethernet ports and connected my wireless card to my neighbors AP. I bridged the 2 interfaces but doing a quick test on network bandwidth I noticed everything was EXTREMELY slower than normal.
