Hello, this is my first post in this forum.
The last week I have googled like a maniac to setup link aggregation between my Netgear X10 R9000 router (Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r34015M kongal (12/11/17)) and my Netgear S8000 switch. Both devices support link aggregation out of the box. Link aggregation has been activated on the S8000 switch but I simply dont know how to setup link aggregation in DD WRT. The two devices are connected with 2 ethernet cables. Port 1 to port 1 and port 2 to port 2.
Can someone please help me setup link aggregation in DD WRT?
Link Ag is currently implemented for the Broadcom chipsets that support it.
The Alpine/R9000 is not implemented.
I run a R9000 with a single lan port to a Cisco 300-20 switch which contains the entirety of the household lan and 2 AP's on it. The remainder of the R9000 switch is unused. The ISP's Gigabit bandwidth is present on the switch with no throttling.
If you really absolutely positively must have Link Ag then you'll need to revert to stock firmware. _________________ Segment 1 R9000 Kong

I have a Quanta LB4M 48 Port 2X10GB Uplink SFP+ Switch connected to my R9000. 10Gbit port.
This is a very cheap switch you can get it from eBay for $60. Cheap and Best. _________________ 2 X R9000: Main router & WDS- STA

Thank you all for your reply. I think im going to forget about link aggregation. No my switch is really Netgear S8000 http://www.netgear.com/landings/s8000/
with link agg/port trunking. I just wanted to give ekstra bandwith for file copy and tv internet streaming/Blu Ray streaming from NAS. But I dont really know if Its needed.
