Hi guys,

Not sure what to call this, there seems to be some debate, basically I have a group of servers 1 of which is a windows 2003 server with a gig nic in it.  It's getting bogged down and I'd like to increase it's available bandwith to the network.  I'm think of adding another gig nic to increase the throughput on the server.  I would like this seamless to the network.  What do I do?

thanks

Hello Silverthorn21,

As i understand it there really is no way of load balancing disimilar network cards in the same server.  In order to load balance you must either use software (3rd party) or be done within the driver of similair network card manufacturers or through a multi port network card.
