I have an interesting issue.  In my network, I have a Cisco 6509 with a WS-SUP720-3B card as my network backbone.  Connected to this, through a VLAN is an uplink to a Cisco 2800 series router that runs a 4xT1 MPLS circuit.  The MPLS circuit is owned and managed by AT&T, is I currently do not have access (none at all).

My Issue:
When I ping the LAN interface from my laptop (plugged directly into the 6500), my pings are always in the triple digits (150-500ms).  When I ping the interface from the 6500 CLI, I get 1ms.

My Setup:
The 6500 has an IP of /24
The router has an IP of /24
I have created a VLAN with IP /24
The uplink on the 6500 is assigned to this VLAN

Things I've checked:
Extraneous routes (none)
The 6500's uplink port counters:
GigabitEthernet1/45 is up, line protocol is up (connected)

I don't see anything that screams issue to me (minus the 5 frame errors, and 3 interface resets, but those have been static for some time
