i was lookin at ASRock's site for any info on LAN configuration or software, like NVIDIA's FirstPacket settings. is there any third party software out there like this? the other thing i did not notice when i ordered my extreme6, was "Dual LAN with Teaming function". does this help w/ net conection? im guessing not. still only as fast as ur isp right? this is what it says: "enabled on this motherboard
allows two single connections to act as one single connection for
twice the transmission bandwidth, making data transmission
more effective".

transmission for something like a LAN party, or for net connection? if for net connection, can anyone explain how this works?

heres the online e-Catalog .pdf

It is basically using two different sources of internet and combining their bandwidth power to increase your overall internet download/upload performance.

This does require two modems, and two seperate internet connections, not just two different ethernet wires coming from the same modem.

At the end, the network card does not make any real difference. Its all about your ISP and the bandwidth you have. However, having a network card such as a Killer 2100 or similar can greatly improve performance in certain multiplayer games like MMO's (like SWTOR and WoW) or FPS shooters (like MW2, CSS, etc).

You are not going to see any difference.

In other words...it's basically a nice gimmick for a selling point.

Really, the only ASRock software that pertains to their LAN hardware is "XFast LAN", but it doesn't get very good reviews. Most P67 owners I know have decided not to install it.

There is other free software available for ASRock owners that most people aren't aware of:
