Could some of you please attempt to explain this to me? All I am really gathering from this is that it allows more bandwidth, from more than one source. Almost 1 + 1 = 2 in the sense 1 = throughput and 2 = more throughput. Thanks guys __________________

wow, that is simple. Why does Cisco have to take that sentence and make it two pages?

Thanks man. I think that cisco is going a bit more in depth though. Now I get the gist of it.

Basically, You take 2 different connections. I dont mean from ethernet 1 or ethernet 2 I mean 2 seperate lines from the ISP. Now their are 2 ways you can do this. Some routers or switches support bandwidth aggregation. Their is also software that can control it. __________________ I Made the Millionth post! | "Please come to WI now so I can beat you over the head with a bratwurst."-Kreij PS3 mod 8500/8600GT Mod Guide Rebuild a Copperhead Heat Ware NF4 Ultra SLI Mod Solaris Utility DVD 4.0 Broken CPU pin guide Vista Mark
