Introduction: Some TP-Link Wi-Fi products have the Link Aggregation function which can aggregate two LAN ports together at most in order to get a higher LAN speeds up to 2Gbps theoretically.

If you build a NAS server in your local network and require a higher LAN speed than 1Gbps, the device environment could be set as below:

Note: Our products only support layer 2 LACP, don’t support layer 3 or layer 4 LACP.

 

Step 1:

Login the management page of the supported product.

 

If needed, you may refer to How do I log into the web-based Utility (Management Page) of TP-Link wireless router?  for more detailed information.

 

Step 2:

Click AdvancedNetwork, and then LAN.

Step 3:

Select your model number:

For Archer AX6000/AX11000/AX50/C5400X:

Enable the Link Aggregation function, select two LAN ports you want as aggregated ports (the aggregated ports are set to LAN2 and LAN3 on AX6000/AX11000 as default). Then click Save.

For Archer C5400/C3150:

Enable the Link Aggregation function, select the work mode as “LACP active” and select two LAN ports you want as aggregated ports. Then click Save.

 

For Archer C2300:

Enable the Link Aggregation function, select the work mode as “Static LAG” – “SRC MAC + DST MAC” and select two LAN ports you want as aggregated ports. Then click Save.

Step 4:

Configure the Link Aggregation function on the NAS server.

For Archer AX6000/AX11000/AX50/C5400X/C2300:

Select the work mode as “Balance XOR” or the mode works with a switch that supports Static Link Aggregation.

 

For Archer C5400/C3150:

Select the work mode as “IEEE 802.3ad Dynamic Link Aggregation” or the mode works with a switch supports IEEE 802.3ad (Dynamic) Link Aggregation (LACP, 802.1AX).

 

Step 5:

Connect the NAS server to our product as we showed at first.

Step 6:

Make sure the NAS server has received a valid IP address from our product normally. You could check it in DHCP Client List.
