Network "Teaming" "Load Balancing" throughput

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?

Hello Silverthorn21,

What kind of server?  Does it have load balancing such as HP has a teaming driver...just set up the team as load balancing and you are done!!!

No it is a Windows 2003 server whitebox with two different nic's.

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.
