Extremely Slow Network Download
Posted on 2010-08-24
I have a networking related issue that I cannot figure out. We have two Datacenters and two offices all connected via Cisco 2800 Routers / VPN devices. It is a multipoint VPN to either datacenter, with internet traffic for the offices routed direct out and not through the VPN.
In our NYC location, users are experiencing issues downloading from certain websites. Notable ones include download.google.com, or any other CDN type download. It seems like the connection starts and downloads the first 300 KB, then grinds to a whopping 56 bytes per second. I spoke to the ISP (Cogent) and they confirmed nothing is wrong with the line (100 MB fiber line).
Could there be something misconfigured on this end with the routers? I cannot figure out where to start.
Any help much appreciated. This is starting to become a real issue for executives downloading PDF's off Financial Websites.
