Question ID: 785463
What would you do if you want to have the fastest possible cellular
Internet connection for your notebook when you're away from home and
you dispose of two different cellular phones with two flat rate UMTS
data plans on two different operators?

Are there any good software for automatic *teaming* these two
*different* simultaneous connections, i.e. that smartly distribute the
traffic between the two cellulars?

I just googled for "modem teaming" or "connection teaming" software
and I found a software called "MidPoint Companion" that was able to
"team up to eight modem connections of any type, including analog,
ISDN, xDSL, cable modems, dedicated lines, and the like.
MidPoint's best feature is its modem teaming and "Download Doubler,"
which splits files into smaller pieces across the available modems.
This feature works using any browser connected to an HTTP 1.1
compatible Web or FTP site." but this software seems disappeared from
The last evolution of it that I can find now is "MidPoint Plus 5.04"
that seems arrested in 2002.

Then I found another software named Vicomsoft InterGate but I don't
trust him because they don't publish any technical detail about the
"connection teaming" function in this program.

What's the best available actually-supported software for modem teaming?

Note: ignore the techniques named "bonding" or "multi-link" because
they require two+ connections on the same ISP and that ISP supports
it. Not good for this case.

Hello lucaville,

Thank you for your question.

I have good news! The midpoint software that you require that can do
what you need is available from any of these websites:


Online Down

Online Down









Try any of those sites and they should allow a download directly to
the file you require.

If you need any additional clarification, let me know and I'll be glad
to assist you.

I'm sorry but:
1) *ALL* your links are dead links
2) I asked for "actually-supported" and you answered with the software
(the Midpoint) I mentioned as discontinued in 2002 in my question
3) Even if I were able to download it from other links, Midpoint is
shareware and I would not be able to get the serial number from
anywhere since it's discontinued since 2002 and the company that
produced it doesn't exist anymore
4) Anyway, people that tried it years ago say that it had problems with Windows XP

Hello lucavilla,

The links are not dead links.  You don't just click on them like a
regular link-- you right click, press "save target as" or "save link
as" and then the .zip file will download and you can open and install
it.  I tested a few of them just now and they work fine.

To make things easier for you, go to this website:

Online Down

and then click one of the bottom 11 links written in Chinese with the
arrow in them looking like this ->

Secondly, you can convert the software into the full version as I have
done; I tested the software using 2 Vodafone PCMCIA GPRS cards and it
seems to work.

Failing that, I have asked a few colleagues who work for mobile
operators and computer resellers and they have not heard of such
software that currently exists; an Internet search turned up nothing.
Midpoint was discontinued in 2002, but that simply means that it is
not updated anymore, not that it doesn't exist.  This is the best
available software and as good as you can currently get.  Let me know
your thoughts on this.
