Help with Cisco bonded ADSL
Posted on 2010-08-21
I'm no Cisco expert and I certainly don't understand the underlying workings of bonded ADSL so hoping for some help with this please.
We ordered bonded ADSL and using a Cisco 2811 bonding 4 lines. Now there was an issue with one of the lines initially but BT sorted that out, now we seem to get high throughput for a minute or so and then it drops down to abysmal speeds, around 4k per second. So it's making the whole solution unusable.
Any ideas on how I can get to the bottom of this? The ISP behaves like they don't understand the underlying technologies either - they've now asked us to take one line out at a time and do speed tests to see if an individual line is causing this. This makes sense but they keep coming up with things like this which means I have to take time to go on site to run these diagnostics, only to push the results back to them and have them come back to me with more things to do on site.
I can telnet to the Cisco and run SDM remotely so if there are any diagnostics you can recommend.
