I am going to make a very quick "Link Aggregation for Mac Pros" Howto an post a link to that here.

But to directly answer your question...

Here's what you need:
- LACP-capable GbE Switch
- 2 Cat 5e or Cat 6 cables to connect to the switch

That's it! OS X has had link aggregation capabilities for a while and it's a very simple affair as you'll see in a few minutes!

Regarding the switch we're using, it's a basic 24-port managed GbE switch, purchased about 5 years ago because it was pretty cheap and although it sounds like a hairdryer (it's in a server closet) it's been trouble-free - not requiring a single reboot.

We've since upgraded all other switches to HP ProCurve as they have a lifetime warranty and if I had to buy one today that was a basic, managed switch I'd pick this one up: - I still can't believe HP offers lifetime warranties on networking equipment!

I'll post a quick video in a few hours.
