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.

quikbluewagon 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! ^^

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

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.

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,

jakester Also are they both plugged into something? If so, where?
04-15-2007 08:41 AM
jakester Any reason for that kind of connection?
