•Enable (LACP-IEEE 803.3ad). The router communicates with the device
connected to Ethernet ports 4 and 5 on your router, and checks to see if
Ethernet port aggregation is supported on the device. If Ethernet port
aggregation is supported, the router automatically trunks Ethernet ports 4
and 5. If not, Ethernet ports 4 and 5 work as independent Ethernet ports. We
recommend that you select this mode unless your NAS or switch can support
static LAG only.
•Static. If your device supports a static link aggregation group (LAG) only,
select this mode. Otherwise, we recommend that you to select the Enable
(LACP-IEE 803.3ad) radio button instead.
Note: You must enable static mode before you connect your device to
Ethernet ports 4 and 5 on the router.
