So you want to connect 3 Ethernet (cat 5 cables) from your machine to your router?

What operating system are you using? The ability to load balance multiple connections would need to be built into the kernel or perhaps third party software would need to be used. I know dual homing machines on the same network can some times be a pain (much less 3 cards!).

Can you provide some more information regarding the situation here?

If anyone has more insight on this it would be much appreciated!

Wait, do you have multiple WAN connections that you are trying to load balance? Or are you just trying to load balance traffic between your router and your PC? I question motive for the latter, as you wont gain much there. Most people even under-utilize gigabit Ethernet in their home use. pfsense can do multi-WAN load balancing quite well. Have a look here: Multi-WAN Version 1.2.x - PFSenseDocs

You do have three internet connections (ADSL, Fiber, whatever) as well as three modems, yes?
