[HELP] Cisco 3660 Comcast Config help

I am trying to configure a Cisco 3660 router for my fraternity. We have Comcast Business, and I am CCNA certified. I have, however, forgotten some of my knowledge as I haven't had the opportunity to practice networking for a few years.

I successfully set up the router a week ago, but for some reason the running-config was never properly saved, so I re-setup the router a couple days ago. While it does work, I'm getting speeds that are a fraction of what they were when I configured it last week. I'm not sure if I'm just missing a simple setting, or what.

Here is my startup-config:


Thank you for your help, and let me know if there's any other info I can provide

Don't hardcode speed and duplex. That's the only obvious thing I can see.

If you're running a /16 worth of college kids through it, I know for a fact it will fall over and die. (we had a customer ~8 years ago try that @ UNCG... we loaned them a 7200 to replace it.) Check the number of nat translations ("sh ip nat st") and cpu ("sh proc cpu" and "sh proc cpu h")

I agree. I have a feeling that by hard coding the speed and duplex, youve forced the other end to fail at auto negotiation, and its running half duplex, which probably explains the drop in speed.

3660 is pretty old now, I'd imagine that it will be absolutely hammered by a bunch of college students. CPU and RAM will disappear pretty quickly with all the file sharing that will no doubt go on.

I changed the speed and duplex to auto, and it worked perfectly! Now I'm getting up to 30x faster connection speeds. We only have around 50 people who will be using the network, and I'm currently in the process of applying for a grant to get the cash to upgrade. Thank you so much for your help, I knew it was going to be something simple like this.

See this FAQ item for basic steps to try.

Glad it's working better now. By the way, what's your package rated as? You could probably pick up and older G1 series
router for cheap that'd pack alot more punch than the 3660.

I assume the frat guys and gals would mind of the router's fan noise.

How did you manage to keep the noise down then?
