1 LAN, my pc with 2 network cards. Can I get twice the bandwidth?
Posted on 2005-04-22
I recently had a new network card installed into my pc (I was told the other one was too slow).
As both cards are capable of running at 100MB (and from what I can tell, they are), is there a way to combine them so I can have a 200MB connection?
This is for intranet only, not out onto the internet which is provided by our proxy/firewall solution. My cards are connected to the same mini-hub (10/100MPs and 1GB) which connects to a 1GB switch (along with the 80 or so other users). The mini hub has one other person connected and the CCTV digital box.
Both cards are working fine at the moment. I have 2 IP addresses - one static as I have a web server on the pc, the other is DHCP'd.
