Dear Fernando,

First thanks for your quick answer. For the moment my question is more 
about knowledge, but as I said I am not confortable with networking 
issue, and so don't want to create problems. In this way I am feeling 
that agregation will be simpler. For example when I want to create a new 
bridge with the same gateway as 1 or 2 other bridge it telling me that 
cannot be possible ! So I let the gateway blank and for the moment it 
works ! :-)

One thing is that you (and wiki) wrote VLANs. But do we need using VLAN 
is the case of bonding ? On my switch I can agregate several ports 
without VLAN ID etc... am I wrong ?

All the best and many thanks.
