bridging connections with XP

I have 2 nic cards and bridged them through the net connections icon in control panel. why don't both show activity? (only one does) Any way to make them both communicate with the hub at the same time?

I had wrote up a long post, but realized I was trying to cover every possible scenario that you're trying to do. Why not post up some more information on what exactly you're trying to do?

Chances are what you're trying to do, is not actually doing anything and you're going to be better off with the original configuration settings.

Take care,

I have a dsl connection going into a router

and I am trying to get more speed for gaming by using 2 100 meg nic cards to connect to the dsl line at the same time, I have both cards connected to the router with cat5 rs45, I thought that was what bridging was for.

Just because you have 2 cards, doesn't mean you're going to be any faster. You can only go as fast as what the provider has you capped at.

Upgrade to gigabit Ethernet. I don't really notice an upgrade on speed Internet wise, but there is a HUGE difference on LAN gaming.

You could have a 10mb nic card in your computer and you'd still be faster than your dsl connection.

Also, check your switch to see if it suports NIC teaming or spanning tree. Chances are the switch is putting one of the ports in blocking mode....and what he said! ^^

The sad part is prior to dsl ISP were selling an option for a ghetto MLPPP setup. Exactly what you were doing, but it has to be config'ed on both sides. For dial up though it was ass.
