big traffic and connecting by multiple patchcords?

Did connecting switch with computers to router by a few ethernet cables has sense? I would like to ensure 1gb connection speed on each part of my big network (about 50pcs, one nas).

I am planning to conenct NAS by 4 cables, NAS has 4 ethernet interfaces, so I have to configure 4 ips. But I dont know how to do it with switches.

You don't have to configure 4 IPs in a scenario like that. Just configure an etherchannel between these devices. You should find that in the NAS-documentation under "channeling", "LACP" or "802.3ad".

In the other scenario I would like to connect 48port siwtch with router by 2 or  4 ethernet cables. Where should I looking for the configuration in routre admin panel ?

It's very likely that the router doesn't support that. At least the user-guide doesn't mention that functionality.

Or ask yourself why you want to connect the router with a channel. Is that really needed?

I have about 60 - 80 users computers on different switches and everything is connected to my main 48 port switch, and I thought about duplicating cables to my router. I;m affraid that one 1 gbit cable will be lightly slow and would be insufficient for my needs.

Users use multimedia applications, office applications, and using NAS shares.

thank you

Re: big traffic and connecting by multiple patchcords?

When you use a small-business-router I assume that your WAN-speed is far away from 1Gig/s. Then you don't need anything like channeling or so. One Link will be more than enough.
