I own a ASRock Z390 Taichi mainboard which has two Gigabit-adapters included (Intel I219V + Intel I211), so i tried to configure them as a team for link aggregation (switch is capable of link aggregation).
I found the intel page about teaming with ANS (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005667/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products...) where I did not found those two network adapters supported.
So I bought two Intel® Gigabit CT Desktop Adapters as they are written as supported adapters, installed them on my computer, still no "Teaming" tabs for none of my (now) four Intel network adapters.
I did some more research and found a thread where it is said that currently those "Teaming" tabs are not available, but power shell works.
I created teams with all four adapters (static aggregation), with only the two onboard adapters, with one onboard and one CT Desktop adapter, i was not able to activate one of those teams (of course there has been only one at a time). Each of the teams has been shown as "disabled", the included adapters are shown as (device name) "Group: TEAMNAME - ADAPTER NAME".
When I want to enable the team (which is shown as an additional network adapter), Windows says "Activating" - "Activated", in network connection it is still shown as disabled.
Using a network connection that is included in the disabled team does not work, no ethernet connection available (of course I've set IP settings for the team adapter), i have to use an adapter that is not in the team.
What's wrong with the teaming?
so the page about teaming ( https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005667/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products... ) has incomplete information, so buying the CT Desktop adapters was senseless.
What about my onboard adapters I211-V and I219-V? They aren't listed.
How can I make link aggregation work with Windows 10 1809?
Hi Michael. I've just tried with the powershell but doesn't work. The powershell remain with the cursor blinking and doesn't complete the creation of the team.
i was able to fulfill your steps, after driver installation I was even able to see grouping settings in the preferences of the I211-adapter in device manager, but not for the I219.
Before, I removed the CT Desktop adapters from the PC, also physically.
After I went through your steps, I was able to create a team, but I end in the same issue. The team adapter is shown as "disabled" in network connections and I am not able to activate it, so the connection is not working...
first- thanks for you answer :)
My windows installation was a clean installation of Windows 10 1809, the PC is just a few weeks old.
Is there a (approx) timeline for the new software release?
For Windows 10 1903 I could imagine to do a clean install again, for 1809, there are too many (Microsoft side) issues
