I have an EVGA 780i SLI motherboard with dual ethernet ports. I was just wondering if there was a way to bridge them like I can in Windows?

Could you explain a bit what do you mean with bridge two connections? What is behind both connections? Two PCs, two routers, one of each, or what? – Lucio Apr 7 '13 at 19:50

bridge-utils package in Ubuntu should help you get started with bridging network connections. It will require editing a few configuration files and running some commands with appropriate privileges.

There is no easy way to do it by right-clicking in the GUI as with Windows. There could be tools that help doing this, but I am not aware of any of them being available in a standard Ubuntu installation.
