  1. Bandwidth & Router Issues

    I live in a condominium that has 3 T1's going into 3 buildings. They
    check out fine. The problem is 1 of the buildings has sluggish
    download problems. Is there someway I can monitor through the use of
    hardware/software and correct this problem? Im thinking someone is
    running a server or whatever. We have 3 Cisco 1700 connected to hubs
    that go to switches. BellSouth is the provider and we have static IP
    addresses. Any help would be appreciated.

    I guess everyone is sharing that T1, did you try allocating fixed
    bandwidth with some kind of bandwidth manager? Should proper bandwidth
    manager is in place; others can't take away your bandwidth that are
    allotted with to you. I know it's difficult to place a linux box, but
    MikroTik's RouterOS and some other BW managers are good choice.

    It's true that cisco 1700 supports priority or custom queuing. And
    that might do the trick. Should you consult committed access rate (CAR)
    commands, which will help you defining filter to shape up the traffic
    and limit the bandwidth allotted.
