I'm sure there'll be a million places this could be happening, but our Internet is slow; it has been for a while.
2 months ago, I replaced our ageing BT router with the Netgear DG834; this brought immediate improvement.
We then installed a SonicWall TZ190 for web filtering; it might be used for more next year. Our machines now point at the Sonicwall as their gateway.
So, we have a BT line coming into the Netgear. Cat5 from this then goes to our TZ190 for firewall and filtering. This then goes to our SBS 2003 SP2 server and into our domain.
Now, the Netgear shows 7 MB plus connection to the Internet.
Running speedtest.net on our server gives a diabolical 1 MB this is before most users arrive on site.
I'm new to SonicWall, but I pinged Google from its diagnostic page and the speed response was pretty dismal.
Is my problem with the TZ190?
Is the Netgear reporting correctly?
How do I prove its not my server?
Any help in narrowing down the problem is much appreciated.
It might be a gut feeling and I don't want to lay any false trails, but I feels this probel is more since we've had the SonicWall, but I might be imagining this.
