Does WAN limit is necessary?



  • HI,
    I'm a beginner, my pfsense is "2.0.1-RELEASE (i386)
    built on Mon Dec 12 17:53:52 EST 2011
    FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE-p6 "

    My WAN link is dedicated 1/1 Mbps.

    WAN RDD graphs shows:
    when TRAFFIC about  1.0 M –-        QUALITY 2.0/3.0/4.0/5.0 K
    when TRAFFIC > 0.5k and < 0.8 M --- QUALITY 0.3/1.0 K

    Web, e-mail,...(Internet)  are extremely slow.

    My ISP provider told me I need limit my bandwidth to use only 1Mbps, because my LAN is trying to use more than 1 Mbps.

    LAN RDD graphs shows always TRAFFIC <= 1.0 M

    I believe the link has bad quality and ISP provider has to improve it.

    Do I need do this limit? How to do this?

    Thanks.

    Sorry my poor english.



  • What do your traffic and quality RRD graphs look like? That'll tell the story on whether it's that you're just exhausting your bandwidth, or if it's a connection problem of some sort.
