      So NIC Teaming?

      In reply to Two 1gbps ports in one

      There are too many priors here so I’ll lead with “it’s a waste of time and money” for most people. Why? It’s revealed at https://www.reddit.com/r/homelab/comments/a7uszq/windows_10_nic_teaming_it_can_be_done/ where they write:
      “1Gbps speeds on a single transfer”

      Also, you usually find the PING time increased which really upsets the gamers. So for multichannel transfers you might get a small gain and here’s where we dive into why that is.

      Let’s say you want to download something from some server. That server’s upload speed is rarely in the 1+ gbps range so all your work didn’t pay off.

      -> I would not do this.

      I would see if I could connect with WiFi 6. Read:

        2 Networks Cards ?

        Thank you for the answer.

        I understand what you mean, but generally the servers which are in France or the border countries and they have very good speed I am generally at 90 mo/s

        There is very little chance that downloads to US or china.
        Even the torrents I also have around 90mo/s

        You should know that the two ports come from the same router, these just that the router limits to 1gbps per port but it can deliver 2x1Gbits or a total of 2gbit/s

        But I think I found a solution

        (the video is in French but you should understand)

        Use an intel network card with to use the intel system to pair the two cards together

          What is 90 mo/s?

          If that was 90 megabits per second you should see no gain and in fact may see speed decrease with the dual Ethernet setup. How do I know? BTDT. That is, many have tried.

          Again, all this has been kicked around for decades and not much has changed except for new networking people that must try it.

          I will have my new apartment in 1 month, I will do some tests to see if this is successful and I will feed the topic again 🙂

          I can imagine that we try a lot but with new technology everything becomes more and more possible! 🙂

          thanks for taking the time to respond

          The o in mo stands for octet, which is 8 bits, so a byte. That’s what’s used in French.

          Back with 1820 mbps :)

          Hello, I will come back to you for the rest of the subject.

          I got the second network card, which is installed and linked.

          Once the limit is around 1820 MBPS but the concern that some applications do not support bonding natively

          I tried with the following software:

          Connectify dispatch pro
          Accelerate
          Fusion

          But without success would you have an idea?

          It appears you are repeating that admonition.

          In reply to Back with 1820 mbps :)

          1. “1Gbps speeds on a single transfer”
          That’s how it’s supposed to work.

          2. About Speedtest. Just under the Go button is “Connections” which is “Multi” and “Single” Your test result looks to be what is expected for Multi.

          Software?

          by warez57 ·

          In reply to It appears you are repeating that admonition.

          I understood very well that its only delivers 1gbps per port.

          Now that the two cards are linked I need to find a software that allows to use this link made via intel and to use it on other application or to download via the browser

          In reply to Software?

          There’s a reddit discussion that revealed that limitation. To overcome this you would have to do something in the router.

          As it stands, your results are as-expected.

          Will you have the link please ?

          This link and limitation was in my first reply.

          -> https://www.reddit.com/r/homelab/comments/a7uszq/windows_10_nic_teaming_it_can_be_done/
          “1 Gbps speeds on a single transfer”

          To overcome this, some firmware would have to be created to split the single transfer and then on the receiving side recombine the result. This is far from trivial and no modem/router maker will reveal enough or do this for us. Also you run into the problem that the target audience is below a percent point.

          I had hoped you would retest with the SINGLE setting at Speedtest to see how your setup fares with the single transfer setting.

          Again, you have it working as expected. In fact, far better than most that attempt this.

          For single transfers the only work around might be WiFi as some standards exceed 1 gigabit per second.
