Here is a quick probably easy question.  I'm looking for some free Network Teaming software so that I can have more network bandwidth to my server.  I know some Intel network cards come with it, but I don't have Intel NICS.

Will check a couple of sites I know for software. in the mean time.. if you have two NIC's  how about load balance them.... that would share the traffic up to the max of both NIC's

Here is a setting to do that...

Ok, if I do use the load balancing that Tele Tech mentioned, I should just be able to hook both of my cat5 cables up to the same switch and it should give me more bandwidth.  Each NIC would have its own IP this way would it not?  So if I wanted to access the server from another machine, could I use either IP addresses, and it would reply back on either one?

In theory that is the way... it would reply on the one with the least traffic.  The computer should see them as dual route and endeaver to keep the load equal... this means with real low load... it may just use the one you went to but as the loads increases is when the balancing act begins to show up... as it becomes great the two begin to look and act as one ..
