Ran into a problem where ISP’s Modem and Balance One WAN Port speeds were degraded from T1000 full-duplex down to most likely T10 half-duplex.
Problem was it appeared that ISP’s connection to Internet was slowed down.
Ping tests showed no problems between Balance One and internet and no problems between Balance One and ISP modem.
Remotely run FTP tests showed drastic slow down in both upload and download speeds.
Remotely rebooting Balance One did not help. Remotely rebooting ISP Modem did not help.
Remotely rebooting both Balance One and ISP modem at same time did not help with slow down in connection speeds.
Balance One router appeared to be working properly. ISP verified Modem was connecting to them at full speed and operating normally. ISP suggest replacing Ethernet cable.
Which led to remotely trying setting WAN-1 to T100 from what was Auto. That brought remote access speeds back to normal.
Setting WAN-1 back to Auto appeared to initially work. Several hours latter, connection was once again slowed down.
Later testing showed that setting WAN-1 to T1000 would result in quick degradation of Ethernet Interfaces between Balance One and ISP modem.
Replacing Ethernet Cable with new CAT-6 between Balance One and ISP’s Modem,
Connecting Balance One to different Internet Port on ISP’s modem,
Switching from WAN-1 to WAN-2 to connect to ISP’s modem,
- has not helped with interface degradation problem.
At issue, is we never could find anything that would report actual WAN interface connection speeds. Which would have really pointed to problem quickly.
As such: Is there a way to get WAN actual interface Speeds?
