How do I increase my internet speed on RB 800

by Doveman » Thu Aug 09, 2012 9:14 pm

I have RB 800, but discover that my internet speed is slow when having like 15-20 users connected(expecting more than 100 users). My ISP is giving me 2MBPS(bandwidth) internet connection which I expect to be more than enough, hope nothing is eaten up my bandwidth.Please, how do I speed up my internet speed and access in my router config.
Thanks for your response.

2mbps is already pretty slow. Sharing that between 15-20 users and it would probably be unbearable. I don't think it is the router that is causing your problem. You just need more bandwidth.

Doveman: How about using mrtg on the uplink to the ISP. Then you'd know if you're using all/most of the bandwidth.
[And then you could use nTop to find out what/who is using it.]

[Even STG would work to gather stats on the amount of traffic, and setup is really quick.]
See - the second item down is STG.

I use smokeping and mrtg regularly to monitor these kinds of things. The long-term graphs are great for seeing trends.
