Why does my server have 2 lan ports? Tags: Article Discussion LAN Switch Servers Last response: February 7, 2010 12:19 AM in Toms Network Share Mikey07 February 4, 2010 10:10:26 PM Hello, My server has 2 LAN ports. Only one LAN port is currently connected to the switch. Will connecting the other port (parallel connection) to the switch work and increase performance?
