It's the LAN speeds I'm trying to improve. Internet speeds are currently more than I can use.

..Anyhow, 'Bridging' the network ports will work as well.
Where can I find this program? I didn't see it when I redownloaded all the drivers. Bridging did nothing for me.

Well, seeing as how the router only has 10/100 Mbps ports, using a second will have a noticeable effect.

Thing is, I have two ethernet ports, and I am trying to see if my computer will actually use both.

I got mine, off the XFX driver disk, that came with the mobo...

If the ports are bridged, then they are working together as one..right now.. What do you mean-> bridging did nothing for you?

**I have done this on my X48 mobo that I use for daily stuff and folding..but not on my 780i, as it is for bench purposes only..all ethernet ports are disabled.

Thanks for all the help so far. Now that the term "network teaming" has been used, I know what to do a search for (that term sounds right).
I will try again this evening (I am currently on a train, heading in to work, surfing OCN on my Crackberry).

Fixed it (for now). Had to roll back my drivers from 15.23 to 15.08, and now I have the option for teaming available to me. Now to play around and see what works best...
