 Problems with bandwidth
Author: Krypto 
Date:   10-04-02 13:08

Hi, I'm using NATd on FreeBSD 4.5, used this ruleset and instructions, and cant get internet to my other machine. Problem lies with the fact that my bandwidth is DEAD. On a download i normall get 130-150kb/s, i now get 30 on THIS machine. My other machine d/ls the file at about 3kb/s. I run cable, and have NO clue why this is happening. I tried dummynet stuff, couldnt really figure out how a protocol to limit bandwidth would make it flow right.. ANY help, tutorials, rulesets to make cable work correctly bandwidth wise is MUCH appreciated.

Sounds like a mismatch on the full/half duplex settings.

I have the exact same problem, when i delete the IPFW rules (the divert one mainly), my bandwidth goes back to normal, but as soon as i add it, i get stuck on about 3k/s

If you can answer it , I think you should help him out. A comment is going over board. At least point him in the right direction.
