BTW - In addition to my other post, I should also mention that the "teaming"
process may require a special switch designed to handle it since a switch on
its own will only send a packet down a *single* wire where the MAC address
matches the ARP Table in the switch. You could overcome that with a Hub,
but then the Hub must still be plugged into the rest of the system (probably
by a switch), so sooner of later you still reach a choke point of a single
I'm sure ways have been worked around many or the problems, but my point is
that is just isn't as simple as you might think.
