My WAN port is 100Mbps full duplex, however my ISP rate-limits me to 3Mbps. Is there any disadvantage to using the command "bandwidth 3000" on my WAN interface? without that command, when I do a "show interface", all I ever see is "reliability 255/255, txload 1/255, rxload 1/255", but when I adjust the bandwidth settings, I get to see some numbers other than "1" in my txload and rxload
Are there any disadvantages to using the "bandwidth" command? It doesn't seem to affect anything other than the calculations that show the txload and rxload.
