What is correct: connect to or with?

Connect to or connect with

 


Actually both may be correct depending on the context. Each of them collocates with different words.

‘Connected to’ usually means a physical connection. E.g. ‘Your computer is connected to a printer’.

‘Connected with’ someone or something means a relationship. E.g. ‘He is still connected with his school colleagues’, ‘symptoms connected with kidney stones’.

  1. Hi,

    What about this:
    1. how to connect to the internet
    2. if you are connected to the internet

    “connect to” and “are connected to” do they mean the same, and can they be used interchangeably?

    Thanks.
