Re: Slow PIX 501 If you don't mind me asking, what is connected to each interface? A router, switch, PC?
I noticed you had set your speed and duplex settings manually on the PIX, always a good idea, but is the other device configured the same way? On the device interface, assuming a router or switch, are you seeing collisions or possibly FCS alignment errors? If so, this could indicate a duplex mismatch on the connection.
All devices in your network should be manually coded for the correct speed and duplex. Unfortunately auto-negotiation, even between two Cisco devices, is unreliable and not longterm stable.
Both external interfaces (for pix and linksys) are connected to a dlink switch which connects to the campus net (2924s). The inside computers are connected directly to the pix or linksys built in switch respectively. The dlink switch seems to work fine. I have my ip phone, both firewalls and and external interface to a couple of servers on it. I want to put the servers behind the PIX but the PIX it to slow.
