The bandwidth is supplied by the underlying network, *NOT* by the
interfaces. Puttting 2 interfaces from a single system onto the same
network (even if it would work - which it doesn't) isn't going to give
you any more throughput *across* that network.
You could use two interfaces onto two different subnets, and spilt
the clients across these two networks (but then the clients will need
something to enable them to connect to clients on the other subnet).
This would give yu double the bandwidth (as you now have two networks).
But the first thing to do is to look at where the bandwidth is being
used at present.
PS: This isn't a firewall issue...
