Load balancing? Raid setup? Come again? What are you trying to achieve?

First of all Raid is for Storage devices, Second what your looking for is called NIC teaming and you need a network switch on the other end that supports NIC teaming. Third, During Load balancing using NIC teaming the session is specific, so file transfers etc. would still only use one connection. NIC teaming is primarily for Network backbone connections and Servers that communicate with several hosts.

I am also not aware of any wifi teaming setups. But this doesn't matter. Problem here is concepts. What is missing is you can't build a great 100mph onramp to a 25mph speed zone and expect to go faster than 25mph

Sorry for the late response some personal things came up. I wasn't really looking for speed in a sense. More just the amount of stuff I can get. I know raids share there data across multiple hard drives and that's what makes them so much faster. So I thought I would try to apply the same concept here. Hard drives and only read so fast and so if you share the work over multiple drives it becomes much faster. So if nic teaming is used in large networks could I just carry over that concept to a smaller scale? Say the schools network acted like an isp. Each isp connection can only hand so much and that's why they use nic teaming. Could I just do the same thing inside the network? Or dose the network I'm connecting to have to have it setup on there end? Just a thought what if to duplicate nic teaming without the setup could I have multiple connections to an outside machine? Say I would split the connection up into pieces on one end and put them back together on another like a rope and each straind is weak on its own but together they are strong.

"I wasn't really looking for speed... More just the amount of stuff I can get."
Bandwidth is how wide the freeway is. Speed from point a to point b is determined by how many lanes on the freeway are free for you to use. Fewer free equals less bandwidth/speed.
Nothing you can do will improve the wifi above 2mbps. There is nothing teaming can do for you nor are you in an environment that supports it. So forget that. Don't think you can use two wired connections and get better performance. Doesn't work that way with both being on the same source. Forget complicated and follow the KISS principle.
Get a wifi router and connect it to a wired connection. End of story.

Assuming such a thing is possible, have you asked the school if they would be happy with it?
