Thanks for the reply.
I am trying to be able to do two different things.
1) I am trying to perform is to channel bond with a linux router that has 3
nics, 2 connected to two different cable modems and one for the lan side to
provide internet access.
2) I am trying to perform is to channel bond with a linux router that has 3
nics, 1 connected to a cable modems and one connected to a ADSL line and one
for the lan side to provide internet access, connected to a hub.

Subject: Re: Channel Bonding
Channel bonding happens with ethernet cards.
If u want to gain in more bandwidth then channel
bonding or trunking as it is known as would be
helpful.Suppose ur box has 2 ethernet devices
configured.eth0 and eth1. if u compile the channel
bonding code and put it in the kernel they can be made
to behave as a single port.so ur beandwidth becomes
double.But some minimal time is spend in distributing
the packets at the hardware queue level.
So it also depends upon at what rate packets are u
getting. Suppose the bandwith(Max) which ur card can
take is A and u ur getting a packet inflow rate of
about 2A then it makes sense to channel bond 2 eth
devices. Otherwise there is no point. There is more to
this. U should know how much is ur average network
