My 2M internet connection is slow

Hi,

I using a 2800 router connected to LOOP-E1500 modem and ASA 5510 firewall on 2M leased line. I experiences sometime the connection to internet is very slow. Normally, it tooks less than 5secs to load a google home page but out of sudden, it may take up more than a minute to load the same page.

Then, when i experience the slowness again, i logged into my ISP MRTG graph monitoring system and saw that the leased line Bandwidth has utilised 100%. Also i noticed that the COL led on LOOP-E modem is blinking too. Therefore, after i have resetted the router and modem, everything's back to normal.

Any advise on why is that so? could it be an attack or some buffer leaks?

Thanks in advance.

Tony

Tony, if the LOOP-E modem says "COL" that's (probably) Collisions. If that modem is Half-Duplex and the connected device is Full-Duplex, the connection will be terrible especially under hig(er) loads. Make sure the duplex settings match.

Yeah!! you are right Paul. In fact, we know occassional collision is ok and i have confirmed the duplex settings are ok too. I just don't understand why it occur sometimes and don't occur some other times. Any experiences before?

cheers,

Tony
