Hello again OverClockers. Regarding my new server, I would like to know what the dual Ethernet ports on the back of my ASUS Z8NA-D6C motherboard can do. Would I be able to have a different IP on each Port, so that I can have two dedicated (static) IP's for external hosing? could I use IEE 108.2 (i think) to literary double my up/down speeds? What does it mean!? Any help would be much appreciated. :3

Don't expect an immediate response.

There is a lot you can do with multiple NICs, such as Link Aggregation (LACP, MPIO, etc) for increased bandwidth (depending on what the server is used for), redundancy, to make a server a router or firewall (i.e., being on multiple networks), or just to have a server available on multiple subnets.

Port Teaming?

Etherchannel?

2 Virtual Lans

wiki the terms if not familiar.... depends on what the rest of your network looks like.

No this wouldn't double you up/download speeds on its own(externally). You could set this up, but it would have to go through your ISP provider.And as suggested there are many things you can do with two nics.

Dual NICs wont increase your internet speeds, but utilizing MPIO you can actually increase bandwidth. Useful when you have a virtualized environment and you utilize MPIO for your VM storage located on a SAN.

You're talking about MLPPP, which I don't think is supported by any of the major US ISPs. I know Teksavvy up in America's Hat supports it on DSL connections, or they used to. Anyway, that's handled by the router, not by the PC.

Maybe I should have explained myself better. But no I wasn't talking about MLPP, I was talking about him setting up two external IP's for hosting. Not to increase his internet speed. At any rate MLPPP or WAN static IP's would have to be setup through his ISP. And there are a few more companies that support MLPPP.Tomato has a router firmware version specifically for this kind of setup.
