    As best I can tell, the BGW320 does not support LAG. It also doesn't seem like AT&T supports LAG. https://forums.att.com/conversations/att-internet-equipment/does-att-internet-support-ieee-8023ad-protocol/61e82301f693d71b8f6f9f0d

    I have used LAG with the BGW-320.  It caused packet loss daily at 11pm like clockwork.  So weird.  Have yet to experiment further.

    Kurtis, did you find something that suggests it supports 802.3AD? I still can't find any document that mentions it.

    No. I have not. AT&T is entirely useless. Couldn’t even help me set up cascaded router mode with my static iP block (closer to bridge than ip passtgrough). After about 9 hours over two weeks, they basically told me suck it, buy a business plan if I want more advanced support. So just overall AT&T residential, no I give up on any type of additional configuration. I can BARELY get the thing to properly assign devices a public iP on the BGW LAN ports (more than one router, training purposes).  Send me an email, we’ll talk and try some things if you’d like.

    Sorry to hear that. 

    Given it looks like the hardware doesn't support LAG have you tried disabling that and see if it solves your issue?

    Oh yes, of course *everything* works fine with no LAG, and am fine continuing to do so @938Mbps.  Getting the 1.2gig over provision is not necessary.  They did not change the price when I asked for this.  And if I want, theres a 5gig port for whatever device needs that ridiculous bandwidth.  Still rather strange.  It's almost like an internal code mismatch in the firmware.  Like BGW is saying "Yes, I can do this" but the att modifications are saying "No, not really IDK.  Maybe for a minute".
