Not sure where to begin, I just picked up an ASA5505 for my personal use. When surfing web pages or vpn in all seems to go well but check on or trying to stream a video off speed are very bursty and never seem to get a normal download rate.

a 7Meg connection is running around 800K

I recently turned off esmtp and http inspects hoping that would cure the issue but still getting rather slow speeds.

Interfaces are set hard to 100 full.

MTU is 1500

A handful of drops but nothing of major concern.

Can anyone please give me some ideas of what else I should look at?

7 Megabit/s = 875 Kilobytes/s

Seems normal to me.

I had reset the Policy and then bounced the ports, now getting proper speeds when using

Unfortunately videos from sites like Youtube keeps stopping and re-buffering like I have low bandwidth.

Is no one else having this trouble with an ASA?
