    • Make sure you plug in the ethernet cable for both ports.
      After you remove the eth0, don't click 'Apply' yet, but create your bond0, then click 'Apply'.
      There are six modes, it's up to you to choose the one that work best for you.
      I believe mode 4, and mode 6 required a switch.

      It sound like the Asus ac88u I have coming should support mode 4. I'm just looking to open up more bandwidth to the server. I believe that's the mode I want. I need to do more reading tho
    • LACP bonding won't improve total bandwidth of one stream, so your 36 GB (Grease in Blu-ray) movie transfer won't happen any faster. It will support concurrent connections, so you can browse the internet while your transferring that movie without impacting performance of the transfer. (I am singing Beauty School Drop right now).

      It also provides fail over in the even one connection goes down. But it won't split and reassemble files. You won't gain speed per se, only expanded bandwidth with multiple streams.

      right so if plex is streaming and I'm moving files to and from other computers I should see improvements. Or plex streaming, syncthing syncing, and files being moved to and from the server. That's the scenarios I would expect to see some improvements right?
