    yello guys
    thanks for ur mails they r quite informative but ihave ben having problems lately with my network and it has to do with bandwidth
    i have p4’s with 256 mb and 500mb memory runnig as my clients. at peak period my network speed between meand my isp is nothing to write home about
    my isp claim am pulling more bandwidth than am doing but i dont want to agree to that becasue at some days i have good speed from them some other days dragging speed.
    i have reconfigured my vlans my local network speed is as fast as hell
    but btw me and my isp am lossing bandwidth some where along the line
    i have done all i have thot was it,
    do u have suggestions on wat is the problem because at certain times am extremely fast and at certain times i am extremely slow
    only computers with above 500 mb ram that can browse the net at such times

      Well, obviously the bandwidth problem is on the connection between you and your ISP. What type of connection are you using – DSL? T1 – if so, what kind of T1? Cable? This could make a lot of difference. For example, different types of T1 lines have different characteristics, and some of them only provide the fastest speed under certain conditions. Cable connections will slow down depending upon not just your own usage but also the usage of all others connected to the same cable loop. Even DSL, depending upon type (ADSL or SDSL) is subject to slowdowns (what they call “latency”) under certain conditions. Sometimes with DSL connections, if you disconnect by shutting down the modem and then bring the modem back on-line, the latency willclear up. However, any of these conditions may have nothing at all to do with you and be completely outside of your control. You could try changing service providers or type of connection if you have alternatives. Hope this helps!

      Bandwidth and speed are not the same thing. Response time measured by appearance is deceiving.

      I suggest you put a packet analyser to identify where the delays are occurring. You may want to check out the WAN/QC by EMCOM if you want to know exactly what your ISP is delivering – from physical layer on up. This will also show all the conversation pairs, useful in determining how your bandwidth is being used.

      If you are on a shared access to your ISP (cable modem, satellite link) you may want to consider a dedicated access for consistent performance.
