Hi, I had setup a lab in which I had a 2514 router connected to my cable modem for internet access. When i did this, the most I could download through it was about 2Mbps, on the 10Mbps cable line (and 10Mbps AUI port). I was just wondering if this is all due to hardware limitations- being 10BaseT half duplex AUI interface? - or could it be a combination of issues. I dont have the config for the router anymore, just wondering what the most likley cause of only getting about 20% of throughput. I had tried playing with QoS policy maps and max-reserved bandwidth settings, but to no avail.
***Cliffs notes: Should i expect maximum throughput of a 2514 10BaseT ethernet port to be about 2Mbps?
The attached documents shows the 2500 series good for only about 2 Mbps with 64 byte packets. I still use a 2501 for TTCP tests which I've seen top out at about 5 Mbps (using the 10 Mbps AUI port).
