    No need to assign ip's individually to the nic's, just need to assign one to the team.

    You can download a broadcom utility which is wizard based, broadcom net xtreme I think it was called, obviously only works on broadcom adapters.

    Intel do their own management software for this & I think the Broadcom utility requires at least one card to be Broadcom.

    I never had any luck teaming intel NICs, it never worked properly. I think it was down to the switch being set wrong, but no matter what I did it never worked.

    Might have another bash at it sometime, see if I can suss it out this time round. Intel have their own utility to do it, should come with the network drivers for that NIC if it supports teaming.
