I'm not sure if it's becuase I have a standard switch between the hatteras and Sonicwall, but the quality of service is not so good. During normal traffic, when I do a continuous ping to www.google.com, I would get a consistently timeout every 20 or so pings. The ping request time is usually ~10 ms which is good.
Additionally when I was downloading something remotely from the server (which is on the speakeasy line), it was destroying the download bandwidth for the speaskeasy line while the upload speed was around 2 meg.
If I was downloading something on speakeasy line, I should be using the upload bandwidth right but is it rendering the download speed to a point that it is unuseable. When this happens and I ping www.google.com, I would get one or two timeout every 10 pins and the response time goes up to 50 and 100 ms.
Any ideas? Speakeasy support is of no help.
