We are a manufacturing business running 17 servers behind a Cisco2800/Pix Firewall. Our servers range from Terminal Services, Web Services, Exchange (2003, enterprise), and other business critical apps in our industry.
We currently have TDS Metrocom and have been experiencing delays in internet access. The delays seem to be non-congruent and sporadic. We have tested outbound web connections to several popular websites (including MSN.com, Google, and others), sometimes achieving fast connections and sometimes really slow connections to the same sites.
We have two inbound T1's for voice and data. None of our employees have complained about voice quality so we believe that our outbound connection is only affecting the data line. We have tested the connection with TDS Metrocom and they state our lines to them are wide open. We have also attempted to measure connection speeds with several speed utilities also seeing sporadic acceptable speeds.
We run McAfee Total Protection Solutions as our antivirus suite.
Any help or advice on how to address the issue would be appreciated.
