Monitoring a "Teamed" connection
« on: August 02, 2010, 08:01:15 PM »
My motherboard had double ethernet adapters that i can use as a single "Teamed" connection to my router.

And although the team is available as a selection, i seem to be monitoring only one of the adapters. . . . the send.
Is there an easy way to get the Network Monitoring to work with send, and recieve from the team, or is it limited in this way.

Just wondering if it could be a simple setting I am overlooking, as I am not a truly schooled tech. :confused:

And my Team settings are simple. . . as my router really does not support proper "link aggregation' managment so I guess I am using the simplest form of "Teaming". . ..      for now at least.

Thanx . . . Forums

Do you have 2 internet connections? If not then having 2 network connections bridged together isn't going to give you any benefit.

What is the goal of the bridged networked connections?

Unless you are using that computer as a router itself (sharing the internet connection through it instead of the router) or as a mega hardware firewall or network packet sniffer or something then you really don't need to use both ports.  All the traffic is going to be aggregated and/or separated at the router anyways.

Do you have some other reason (other than what has been mentioned so far by any of us) for doing this?

Maybe a link to the motherboard support page might bring something to light?   :thinking:
