Hi,


Check this link http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios113ed/cs/csprtd/csprtd1/cssyncs.htm


The "bandwidth" is useful to Dynamic Routing Protocol. For example, in OSPF it use in metric calculation. If you don't use Dynamic Routing Protocol, I don't see the use of "bandwidth" command. Check this link regarding "bandwidth" command in serial interface http://articles.techrepublic.com.com/5100-1035_11-6093972.html


To configure serial port in DCE mode, use "clock rate bps" - bps is your line speed. Take note that the higher speed may not work if your cable is too long. To allow higher speed, use only EIA/TIA-449 or V.35
