The issue of course is you can ever get 100Mb/s so good luck on 200Mb/s (in most cases)

GonX has it best. There are three options with Dual GB LAN:
1) Two connections to different networks
2) Teaming the two connections together on a single network to improve bandwidth. (NOT LATENCY!!!)
3) Teaming to improve redundancy. If one connection receives a corrupted packet, the other connection may have gotten a good packet so a re-send is not needed.

So basically dual gigabit is useless without a gigabit router and gigabit line. Is the gigabit line the same as a normal ones only that there are additional modifications to make it work with 2? Can i just plug 2 wires from my normal linksys 11mbps to my mobo? Will i get anything else besides a backup wire?

"3) Teaming to improve redundancy. If one connection receives a corrupted packet, the other connection may have gotten a good packet so a re-send is not needed."
how do i know this is done or is it done automatically? Becausei hate it when i download a large file only to open it and find i corrupted, i have to redownload all over again.

Not 100% sure since I am no network engineer. I believe each packet sent contains a check digit. After receiving a packet, the values are added up and compared to the check digit. If they match, the packet is probably fine. If not, the packet is corrupted and the packet must be requested again.

If your mobo has this redundancy teaming option, it should automatically use the good packet if it gets one bad and one good..

Here are some diagrams. Select DualNet and look at "Teaming: 2X Bandwidth" and "Teaming: Failover". Note, that the application is more for LANParties where you can get higher bandwidth.

i have my computer hooked up to a router and a switch, the router leads to the internet and the switch leads to another computer, and the computer acts as a router to give that other computer access to the internet. this way i get the gigabit speeds for sending files, because the router isn't gigabit so i only use it for the internet not sending files.
