    Default LAN Teaming GA-X48-DS5

    I was just wondering if I'd get any benifit from using both my Gigabit Lan ports on my home network. I have my ADSL modem connected to a 4 port Router. So my Questing really is would I get faster internet if I used both Lan ports and connected to two ports in the router? Its a bit of a noob question but I cant really find any definitive answers anywere.
    Thanks In advance.

    No, it will not work like that sadly.

    You must use teaming in Intranet (Internal Local Network setup or PC to PC with both supporting teaming) such as a LAN Party across a network with a supported switch/Hub (802.3ad capable)

    It is not the same as bonding, which is what you are thinking of. Here is some reading on all of this >>

    Anytime man!

    Ya, this has been asked a few times but not as many as you would think considering how many users likely think of it this way.

    Currently, between my dell & my new system I get a transfer rate of about 12.7mb/s (according to vista). When it feels like it. Sometime for no reason at all it can drop to bytes per second but I put that down to vista.

    Ouch, is that vista to vista? Or XP to vista? Sp1 on the Vista?

    I have seen XP to vista issues like that, across wired or wireless, but not vista to vista

    I found it much faster to setup a virtual machine in Vista with XP in it with shared folder access to the vista files to move them from a vista machine to XP

    I dont know why, but there is STILL (Hear me MS) issues both ways when it comes to vista/xp transfers?

    Yeah It was just to hard for xp to vista, I am using Vista to vista SP1 both lastest. Both fresh installs, its not a network thing its a vista thing. Its like sometimes when you try and move large files from one folder to another on the same drive, do it once, bang its done, do it again and it may work, third time is will be in bytes per seconds and tell you it takes hours. Im still having stupid stuff with vista thats so anoying, Media player is my player of choice simply for the ease. I use VLC to but I like the libarary in MP, but like yesterday I pause an MP3 then go to resume it and it plays but no sound. so I have to mute and unmute again. May be a Creative X-FI thing but I doubt it. I could go on all day about the little things that vista makes me stress about but theres no point. Roll on Bindows 7. On and microsoft, please can you please fix the Delete option on recylcle bin. lol. I get a lot of calls on this one lmao.

    lol. I dont know why its so hard but I was cleaning up some HDD space the other week and I had an old 320gb HDD intenalally connected SATA and I was trying to move 200 odd gig of stuff at once, it really didnt like it. I had to move stuff 2 gig at a time. Which is crap.

    This is my biggest gripe with Vista (though there are quite a few more), I certainly hope that M$ has fixed this in Win7, as I work in moving large files (4Gb-40GB) across a network and the time it takes to do these tranfers is pathetic compared to XP.

    This feature does come at a cost but is well worth it for me.
