I cannot get fast speeds when connecting through my sonicwall router. If I connect through the comcast modem I get great speeds. I have changed the MTU on the sonicwall to 1420 by following this http://www.experts-exchange.com/viewArticle.jsp?articleID=3110
I have turned off all security setting.
Do I need to add the comcast modem private ip somewhere? 10.1.10.1 and my SW is 192.168.10.1
I have the SW with one of my Static IPs and I have the server as the DHCP and it is plugged into the x0 LAN port and the network switch in x3 port. I am getting slow speeds from the server and on workstations.

let me knowi f there is something else I need to change on the SW.

Very common issue you have, check you dulpex settings on both the comcast modem and firewall and ensure the duplex settings match (both sides must be auto or har set to the same full and full, exmaple 100-full/100full or auto/auto).

check the duplex settings on all hosts and network devices.
Has anything changed in the network to get slow speeds (Changed ISPs, new setup, etc).

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Ping 4.2.2.2 what is the time in ms?
Try disconnecting all devices except one PC but still go through the sonicwall and do a speedtest.

the duplex is set to 100 Full.
It was an office move/new service
I just bought a linksys router to test and the speed seems fine with it. Now I just have to dive deeper into Sonicwall to see where there could be a bottle neck.

Speed test with the linksys showed 20MB+ but going to different pages take forever and I can get to yahoo.com right now but I can ping it. I think I might be a service related issue with Comcast.

It seems as though I had to have both the comcast modem and the sonicwall router set to auto and that solved the problem.
