I'm looking at two Ethernet cdaq chassis connected together, one 4 slot cDAQ-9185 and one 8 slot cDAQ-9189. Was looking at populating them with NI-9234. My quick less educated crude calcs show the bandwidth should be enough to capture 48x channels (12 slots with 4 channels each module) @ 24 bit and 51.2kHz? Although I've likely made some mistakes.

You're in the right ballpark for a raw calculation. I'm assuming the 24-bit samples will be carried in a 32-bit integer though, which brings the bandwidth demand up to almost 80 Mbps. If you're on a 100 Mbps connection, that may be too high a %age of the theoretical max to count on. Others can probably comment with more complete knowledge.

Thanks. That example in the link was for the same model of module so good to validate my rough calc
Which yes I only used 24 bit.. So explains why it was even more comfortable. I'll mostly be using them plugged into a gig ethernet port.
