Speed question

Hi:

Just a simple question.

I have a LAN running with 100Mbps cards,

I have a DS0 at 128Kbps.

IF the Ethernet port of my router is 10Mbps,

Does that port slows my Internter access Speed??

thanks

Re: Speed question

Im assuming this is what you currently have setup

100 mb ( times X) - switch - 10 mb - router - 128k (internet)

In this case the 10 mb port is a bottleneck given there is enouph traffic to fill up the 10mb port and its buffers at once. The pipe going in given a lan of multiple users is substancially greater that the 10mb provided. Of course there are other variables in this equation but here is the bottom line.

Sincerely,

Re: Speed question

If you have two 64K DS0's and a 10mb/sec port on your ethernet connection to the router, the internet connection is your bottleneck. In this case, your connection appears to be like a perfect funnel. You have a 100mb/sec connection's from the computer's (machines) to your lan, and a 10mb to your router, and from the router to the internet at 128K, you are are downsizing each time. The ethernet is not going to be your slowdown to the internet, your 128K connection is.
