Insert the Gigabyte motherboard driver disc into your computer's disc drive.
Many Gigabyte motherboards include two Ethernet ports, known as dual LAN, with teaming support. When teaming is enabled, the computer can connect to two separate networks and split its traffic between the two, taking advantage of each connection's bandwidth. Teaming also ensures that, if one network goes down or can't access the Internet, the computer automatically uses the other network, preventing any network downtime. Teaming is a feature of the built-in Realtek Ethernet adapter and is configured using Realtek's included utility.
