Few questions in regards to bonding & data rate performance on the RB750G.
I recently purchased the router with ideas in my head for supporting different features on my home network that I've long wanted. One being 802.3ad support for my home file server.
I have a synology NAS that supports 802.3ad and was hoping to see improved transfer speeds if I utilized port bonding on the 750G. my network backbone, a 24p gigE switch does not support 802.3ad.
1) Will enabling a port bond eth 2/3 using balance alb to my backbone and a 2nd bond eth 4/5 using 802.3ad to my NAS increase total network throughput to it for multiple users? ex: if multiple devices are copying to or from the NAS, am I going to see improvement over 1gigE connection using 2 bonded ones via the RB750G?
If so: How do I accomplish a switched link between these bonds? I'm newer to this level of networking and I'm not following how I apply the local network to both bonds, there isn't a option to "slave" a bond, like you can eth interfaces.
Even if I won't see a improvement using this method, just for a FYI, can someone explain how 2 bond's are linked together on the same device? I guess if speed isn't increased, other then fallover/backup I can't think of another reason to setup such a thing, but I would still like to know to help turn the light on in my head.
Thanks in advance.
