Will adding a second network card on my server help speed up office users connectivity
I have an older IBM server running Windows server 2003 standard. I currently has 1 ethernet port running at full speed 1Gbps. It is connected to a gigabit switch which is what all the other users are connected to. Some users have complained that the network is slow at times when everyone is on. All computers have gigabit cards and are running at full speed. Is there a way to improve network access to this server by adding an additional ethernet card gigabit card and then bridging them in a load balancing mode? Would that help and how do you set this up once the card is installed?
