I am using a HP laptop, there is inbuilt WiFi device for it, and I have an additional USB WiFi device (external) for my desktop.The thing I want to know is, can I simultaneously utilize my USB WiFi device (external) and internal in order to get high data rate. Can both of these devices work in co-ordination with each other to provide fast Internet Experience? Any Suggestions?

Since you are using a laptop, adding a second USB Wi-Fi adapter will do nothing to improve the strength of the signal. Also, there is no way you can combine both internal and external Wi-Fi adapters to get a better data rate for your internet connection. But it is better to use the internal Wi-Fi adapter of your computer because it operates better than the external USB Wi-Fi adapter.

So, if you are thinking of buying a new USB Wi-Fi adapter just to boost your Wi-Fi speed, I guess this is not a good idea. You will only waste your money but will not gain any boost in your Wi-Fi speed. So, it is better to stick with your internal Wi-Fi adapter than purchasing a separate USB Wi-Fi adapter.
