I am predicting that the bottleneck on data transmitted between computers in LAN network is mostly caused by the ethernet cable rather than the equipments used. Can I reduce the limit by using multiple ethernet cables? What protocol/softwares/devices should I use to achieve this between two computers or computers connected with a switch in a LAN network.

    If there is a problem with the cable you should replace it. There are several different protocols defining how to use multiple connections for speed or redundancy. You should begin by researching Link Aggregation Groups and Load Balancing. – music2myear Mar 15 at 16:27

    Here's a good starting point for link aggregation: Link aggregation on Wikipedia – Deltik Mar 15 at 16:28
  • If you want to use multiple cable you will need multiple ports on communicating computers and network devices. – Setop Mar 16 at 0:01
