I am looking to limit both the maximum upload and download speeds on a single FA interface on a Cisco 2950 switch. Our problem is that during peak hours, our business class cable internet connection is getting maxed out until the point that it gives up. Only solution to this point has been to wait for this to occur (internet stops working), then power cycling the modem. Already contacted the ISP on this issue and their only solution is to upgrade our service. My hope is to limit this "bottleneck" on our equipment instead of the cable modem.
Cable modem > Windows Server 2003 (NAT/DHCP/DNS) > Cisco Switch > Client.
Since the "uplink" to the Windows Server is a single FA int on the switch, is it possible to limit both upload and download throughput on this interface?
The internet connection itself it 7mbit down, 2mbit up. Was hoping to limit it to 6/1.5 and burstable to 6.5/2. If this can be done from the Windows Server side I'd be interested in this as well.
Attached is version info on the switch.
Thanks for the help!
