Hi list,

I have the following setup:

FreeBSD -if0---------flaky link1 ----Switch----FreeBSD Router
  |                                    |
  if1 --------------flaky link2 ---

I think the best configuration would be to use lagg(4) with LACP to
catch the failing links.

I have found several examples to do this with two completely seperate
links both computers using lagg interfaces, but in my setup the router
has only one interface.

AFAI understood the Router needs to answer the LACP packets send by the
lagg interface. how do i activate this on a normal ethernet card?
