http://serverfault.com – I've have a wireless bridge (tew640mb) that connects to a wireless router. If I connect a machine with one NIC into a port on the bridge, the network connection is fine. If I connect a machine (with two NICs bonded together at the OS) via two port connections on the bridge, the connectivity is flaky at best. I've tried pinging other machines and the loss rate isn't exactly 50%, but its never more than 65% and never less than 20%. Is there some issue with connecting two NICs that are bonded directly to a bridge? Could this cause routing issues with the main router in that it sends packets t (HowTos)
