    I have a new Maingear box inc, and it has the 680i chipset. Nvidia sates that you can span the 2 ports for increased throughput. I imagine this is software based. Has anyone played around with its functionality?

    If the connection to your router is only 100mb (like most routers) I dont think it will get any faster?

    well..the DGL4300 does have Gigabit ports... but yea..it would be more about combining the throughput of 2 ports..that would have potential

    Wouldn't this require a reasonably intelligent switch (and therefore an intelligent, managed one), or am I missing something?
