Multiple NIC's - Page 2

post #11 of 13
You would double the bandwidth between your PC and the router, but not anywhere else. So you could transfer things between another computer setup the same way, or between multiple devices on the router and see benefit. You would not see a benefit once you're outside the LAN.

However, In a situation like mine I think you could also see benefit. I'm in college, and my school's network seems to limit me to about 2.8 mb/s down. They allocate a certain amount of bandwidth to each device, but if you have multiple devices, you could double that allocation. At least that's my idea, I don't know if I'm thinking about it right.

Not quite. I doubt you're even saturating your modem.
For what your thinking of, look at it this way. You have say a 50/10meg connection. Your modem has a 100mb or 1gb switch/LAN port running to your computer. Best case scenario is you have 60megs of data travellin gbetween your computer and ISP at any given time along a 100meg on 1gb line.
See my point?

It "could" work for your internal network between computers, tho all would have to be able to realize the same amount of throughput at the NIC.

it was just a little thought I had bumping around in my head and thought I should get a second opinion
