Etherchannel, load balancing between 2950 and 7500
I have a 2950 switch with two gigabit and 24 Fastethernet ports. I am trying to reach a capacity of 200 Mbps by using etherchannel between the switch and the router. Two FE ports both at the switch and router sides are included in the etherchannel. Does port-channel load balance the traffic between the switch and the router? Or at least does port-channel start using the second FE port when the first one is saturated? Uplink to the upper carrier is connected through one of the gigaethernet ports, which means all the traffic comes from only one MAC address and goes to an other MAC address at the router side.
