We purchased a Balance 30 for our office, and it’s been working great, but we’ve realized a small issue. We have a T1 and a cablemodem plugged into it, and if we put more than 1mbps of traffic on the T1 at any time, it starts to drop packets/pings. I’ve entered 900kbps into the Balance 30’s settings for the T1 connection, but that doesn’t seem to actually limit the speed (I’m guessing it uses those numbers for calculating what connection has more “available” bandwidth or something?)
Is there a way to actually limit the speed on that connection to < 1mbps?
Also, what does the “Cable/DSL Optimizations” do exactly? The help tooltip and manual aren’t very clear. Thanks.
