For Proxmox PVE 6, does anyone have a screen shot illustration of how to use the GUI to add in a new NIC, then create a Linux Bond, and lastly a bridge, so that I can dedicate this new bridge for the VM+Container? I am not familiar with Debian command lines. Searched everywhere include Youtube, but non of the guides were detailed enough, all of them led me to cause losing connection to the Management GUI. Wish the PVE Admin Guide has a better illustration to accomplish this command and important task!

A new respectively not yet configured NIC will automatically appear in WEB-GUI. Configuration has to be made as you mentioned above: create first a Linux bond by "System" -> "Network" -> "Create" -> "Linux Bond" and afterwards a new bridge by "System" -> "Network" -> "Create" -> "Linux Bridge" and add the previously created bond to it. The requested paramters has to be written into self-explaining appearing boxes.

Never mind when you are unsure: the configuration will be put into effect after the next reboot only. You can revert (and delete the pending changes) to current configuration before reboot at any time by "Revert" button.
