Win95B and 2 NIC's??

By micah ·
How do I configure windows 95b to use 2 network cards. I am looking to increase throughput on a machine hosting a simple html knowledgebase. Any ideas? Thanks.

If this is really a "simple HTML knowledgebase" then I'm guessing bandwidth isn't really the issue. More likely, it's a memory or processor issue. I don't think you can use 2 NICs in parallel, you'd actually have to assign them different IP addresses, and possibly have 2 instances of peer web server (if that is what you are running) working. Then you'd have to balance your load by using 2 different destination addresses and splitting your users somehow. I'd suggest
1) upgrading your existing NIC to the best hardware there is (someone else will have to recommend that)
2) Eliminating all extraneous processes on you host
3) Ensuring you have only the protocols loaded that you need
4) Ensuring that your host is connected to the active electronics correctly (don't use any autobaud or autoduplex settings, lock it down)
5) Ramp up the RAM on your host

Cisco has a solution if you have a cisco switch. With two network cards that support it you can bond to channels together and double your bandwidth and if your cards support full duplex you can quadruple it.
