Performance increase with dual NICs

If I set up a FileMaker Server box with dual NICs, separate IP addresses and DNS entries that point both IP addresses to the name of the FileMaker Server should I expect a performance increase with respect to network access and through put?

 

For example:

 

FM Server name: FMServer1

 

NIC 1 IP address = 192.168.1.100

NIC 2 IP address = 192.168.1.101

 

DNS entries

 

FMServer1 = 192.168.1.100

FMServer1 = 192.168.1.101

 

Thanks,

 

Jim...
