Sonicwall 2040 IPS is slowing down connection
Posted on 2009-04-23
I have a Sonicwall 2040 and we recently upgraded our connection to 20/2. Unfortunately it runs consistently at 8.6 down - before the upgrade and after. I bypassed the firewall and had excellent connection speeds, so after troubleshooting further it appears the intrusion protection settings on the 2040 are the issue. I'm not keen on turning off IPS, are there any recommendations for an alternate resolution? We have a private server that is accessed by a few employees, but they do not have static IP addresses.
Any thoughts you have on getting what we pay for on the internet speed without compromising our security would be much appreciated. Thanks!!
Hello? Is this thing on? Anyone?
