Sonicwall kills Uverse DSL performance (even on other ports)
Posted on 2013-01-31
I have a Uverse DSL model that connects to a Sonicwall and then a switch that connects the rest of the network. When a machine is plugged directly into the DSL modem, the ping times are in the 40-70ms range & the bandwidth is 11ish. Once my Sonicwall(and the rest of the network) is connected to the DSL modem, the ping times drop to 500-700ms-even on directly connected LAN ports on the DSL modem and the bandwidth drops to 1-3mb. The modem & Sonicwall are both set to auto negotiate.
