Cisco 3745 router bandwidth increase using 2 fa ports instead of 1?
Posted on 2009-07-15
Our network has 3 subnets and 2 vlans, our only core switch (3750G) connects to our 1 router (3745) through to the routers fa0/0 port and all subnets and vlan's connect from the core switch to this interface on the router, the router has a second fa0/1 port that is not being used, I'm wondering if I set up the fa0/1 interface for our ip phone vlan and subnet and connect it to another port on the core switch will that increase the bandwidth to the router and more efficiently use the overall bandwidth of our network?
Note: The router goes to the satellite through the s0/0 port, all other serial ports are not used , the bandwidth we have is 1024 megs. All other switches on the network connect to our only core switch which connects to our only router.
