let s say I have 2 sites and they are linked with 3 bandwidth 1.5MB and 256 KB, 128 K
I wonder where Do I configure it to tell the replication between sites to  allways use the 1.5MB, if this line is unavailable take 256, if both 1.5 MB and 256 K are unavailable take 128 K line.

Thanks

Actually, it depends on how your routers are configured.  If all three connections are up at the same time, it will used the least busy.  If you have a router configured to use the 1.5Mb connection as primary with the others as failover, it will only use the 1.5Mb until your router fails it over.  Frankly, if you have these three connections between just the two sites, I'd use your routers to handle it, otherwise if you're having trouble with connectivity you'll have a harder time troubleshooting.

If you have MORE than two sites, then you may want to get deeper into site configuration, site links, etc.

so the Cost in AD sites and services has nothing to do with it?
