How is data transferred from one site to another?
Posted on 2011-03-07
I do not understand how to troubleshoot a speed issue and how to maximize my connections to my headquarters. I first need help understanding how data is passed from a laptop on wifi or desktop wired in with cat 6 and how it would request/transfer data from a server over at my headquarters. I need a step by step process from PC/laptop to server. My physicians are complaining that their EMR application is slow sometimes on wifi and sometimes on a desktop connected with cat 6.
I've got a Sonicwall TZ210 W with interface settings:
X0 - LAN - Primary Bridge I/F - 1000Mbps Full-duplex
X1 - WAN - 100 Mbps Full duplex
X2 - WLAN - Secondary Bridge I/F - 100 Mbps Full-duplex
I've got Sonicpoint access points connected to a gig switch and mounted on the wall.
I've got XT2 Dell Tablets which has Wireless N and currently my connect rate is from 24Mbps - 54 Mbps with Tx Rate from 54mbps - 130 Mbps.
I have GiG swtiches with CAT6 cables ran through out clinic building.
I have DSL for internet
I have a point to point fiber optic circuit (10meg) from this office going to my headquarters and I use an Adtran 5000.
Thanks so much and I appreciate your help.
