Using both ethernet ports

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My mobo (see sig rig) has two ethernet ports. I have both of them connected to my FIOS router. When monitoring my network traffic (using the Vista sidebar gadget thingie), it looks like only one of the ports is being used. I recall from playing around in Vista a while back that there was an option to connect the two ports so they were viewed by the computer as one port (with double the throughput), but I can not find this option anymore. Does anyone know what I am talking about and can point me in the right direction?

Is it the one in the NVIDIA control panel where you choose combine the network adpaters?

You'll need two internet accounts to do that and a router that supports multiple accounts. The router has to put the two data paths together into one data stream. Without the required router the best you can do is to use one account to receive data and the other to send and that won't get you that much improvement.

You can look at it this way too, a nic doesn't "pull" data from the ISP, the ISP "pushes" it. So with multiple nic cards (even if it would work) there's only so much data in the wire and no matter how many nics you have, that's all there is.

DennisC got it first.. 'Network Teaming'

Are you trying to "...deliver vast amounts of information over the Internet...enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material." ?

lol

1gbs would be fast enough for me. Are you really sending that much data locally in your network?

I'm only getting GPU stuff in Nvidia control panel. I don't think I installed an updated control panel. Let me try that.

Tried that. All it did for me was switch which port was being used and show some low-level ping-type stuff on the other.

Actually, my connection is capable of supplying much more bandwidth than a single ethernet port can carry (fiber direct to my router) - that's what I am trying to capitalize on.

right click the connection in your network connections and select bridge connection.. however this will really only improve your LAN speeds not much with your actual internet speeds..

Yeah..if you dont have the 'Network Teaming' options..maybe you have not installed the NvidiaNIC program ..

..Anyhow, 'Bridging' the network ports will work as well.

I mean, this is neat and all, but is it really going to benefit you by adding another 1 Gbps to your LAN? I'm not saying it won't, but how much data are you transferring over it?
