•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

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.
