Currently, I have two NICs bonded together that are connected directly to a DSL router. The bonding is mode 0 - simple failover with load-balancing.
This works fine, with about half of the packets going to each NIC.
I have a Catalyst 2900 switch that I have created a VLAN for, and tried connecting the two NICs, along with the DSL router to it. When I did this, traffic was split between the 2 NICs with about 1/3 going to one and 2/3 to the other. Also, it appeared that overall performance decreased.
I did try connecting the NICs and router to a simple switch, which worked fine, just as wihen the NICs were connected directly to the router.
Is there something specific that I need to configure the VLAN for to get this bonding to work?
As always, TIA.
