Hi

I have a server with 2 nics installed, and using windows 2000 adv server. today we are using only one nick, but the traffic increased. If i change the switch to one with a 1gbps port, i can use a high speed link between server and switch, but i dont have money to spend this month, and the problem is getting worse.

My question is: Can i connect the second nic on the same switch, and then setup windows network load balance to divide the traffic between the 2 nics (same server)? The server is used to serve files and some systems written in Delphi + Paradox.

Thanks!
Carlos

Yes, if your SWITCH can do that.

But, if SWITCH can't do that, and you can split your network for different segments, you can assign IP-addresses from different segments to different NIC, and clients from one subnet (segment) will use one NIC, and from second subnet -- second NIC. (sorry for english)
