When having a motherboard with Dual Intel® Gigabit LAN ports does it give you any benefit when using both ports pluging into the same router/modem??

Well, if you bond the NICs you could have 2x the lan speed.

LTT has a video of him doing like a ton of connections from his router to his one server. Gets great speeds

well the board im looking at has Intel® I210, 2 x Gigabit LAN Controller(s) according to its specifications, when you refer to the lan, are you talking just accessing my local network or my actual internet speeds?

No, it won't double your internet speed, if you have two internet sources then yes.

Are you talking about two physical rj45s? I'm not familiar with the I210 or whatever.

If there are two physical connections, and the nics are bonded, you will have double the speed on the LAN.

Internet will not change.

it will just double the speed from your router and nothing else, even between devices it wont help if they are on a single port on the router. no it wont double your internet speeds. IIRC your router also needs to support link aggreigation as well

Thanks for the rep

That board is killer by the way. the P9X79 series is all very good.

Do you host anything on your LAN? Like a file server or PMS?

Well, 1 to 1 connection, you are right.

But if he is connecting to a file server, PMS, and multiple other LAN devices, he theoretically can have more connections with multi to one.

If he only wants to access one thing on the network (Like if he has a single server) he would have to do dual nics there too. Also, yeah, I think you are right about the routers.

Rep'd because this knowledge helps the community.
