- What are the bandwidths of the three links?

- Are you running any Quality of Services?

If your physical link is a 2 Meg, then 1.5meg is over 75% and you would have to assume that this is a saturated link and more prone to drops/errors; if you are not running any QoS then you may want to consider the advantages of doing this.
