    A switch with a similar price from the competition (GS110EMX) supports LACP without any problems... I would never have thought that you could advertise Link Aggregation, even in the advertising materials, as you can see above, there are pictures with suggested connection in this way, and not support LACP. 

    The home user does not care about 2 devices at the same time (load sharing), he does not care about redundancy. Would like to increase speed between 2 devices.

    Hi @Don_Mag,

    Thanks for your advice.
    However, Link Aggregation/LACP cannot achieve a direct transfer speed of 2Gbps, as the maximum transfer speed of each physical port is still 1Gbps.
    The Link Aggregation/LACP of the switch uses load-sharing to split the traffic by source/destination to improve network bandwidth and availability. This can ensure each client sharing the whole LAG bandwidth and achieve the aggregated throughput.
