Actiontec MI424WR GigE Bonded LAN interfaces

Good Morning Everyone! I wanted to see if it was possible to bond the 4 LAN interfaces on the Actiontec MI424WR GigE routers to connect up to a etherchannel on a Cisco Switch? I have looked at the manual but I have been unable to find any information on this setup. Just curious to see if anyone has accomplished this. Thanks.

Why would you want to do that?  The FiOS  WAN link is at best 300/65Mbs. A single GigE port has more than enough bandwidth to handle this.  Redundancy is not an issue, as there is only one WAN link so a redundant LAN doesn't buy anything.

To answer your question, I've never heard or seen anything about Ethernet bonding support in the MI424WR routers.  Bonding is something used by high end networks, and not typically found on a small office/home office router such as the MI424WR

Have Fun!

I'm a network engineer so the geek in me is curious to see if this is supported. Will look around and see if it is possible. Thanks for the reply
