    Dear Sir,

    We are using 2mbps leased line connection between sites.

  • velpandi007 Sep 05, 2008

    Other ends also we have cisco 2501 router.We have single leased line to each location.

    Also you said you have a Cisco router at the main location, what is on the other end?

    And the way your question reads, it says "we've connected the router to 2 remote locations".

    So there are 3 locations all told?

    That's whay I asked how is your connection going to each?

  • Coss May 11, 2010

    2 mbps?

    a T-1 is 1.5mbps, it's also called a point to point if it is a solo leased line.

    And as asked. what kind of traffic is currently going over the line?

    And is it a single leased line to each of the locations? or it is a shared line that goes to both sites?

  • Coss May 11, 2010

    That's not a bad reply time.

    Since communication is vase on signal transfer, what are you using as a connection? DSL? T1? ISDN? OC44? Etc.

    Depending on the connection type will help figure out an answer.

    And are the connections to both the same?

    What kind of traffic is currently passing over the connections? and so on.

    All of these parts come into play to determine communication stats

Ok, great....
The 3ms to 10ms is where the reply times should be.
On your original question you stated 147ms - 87ms, but with a drop to 6ms-7ms (which is where it should be)
So it sounds like your connection is just re-establishing at start up.
How long do you have the keep alive set for?
How long had the connection been inactive before you pinged it the first time?
What are you using for authentication? 3DES? or something less?
Was the person that programmed your Cisco's certified? (in other words, did he know what he was doing?)

And are you having any connection problems while it is running?

Hello. I have a unique problem. I have a Windows Vista home premium system that can ping to my gateway and other systems on the local network but can not ping beyond my gateway and can not browse the...

If you can PING your gateway, then there was no need for the 'WINSOCK FIX'.

Access the web-server "inside" the router, and look at the table of DHCP clients -- confirm that your computer's "wired" and "wireless" connections are listed, and that they have been assigned IP-addresses.

The router should have its own 'PING' interface, so try PING-ing to '' -- you should get output like:

Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from bytes=32 time=126ms TTL=241
Reply from bytes=32 time=103ms TTL=241
Reply from bytes=32 time=91ms TTL=241
Reply from bytes=32 time=93ms TTL=241

if your router has an Internet connection.

Client can not surf or ping specific web address - Cisco router

I am not sure but I believe the IP address is not correct. The trace goes to the following address:

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Tracing route to []

on my machine. This is only a service provider I believe and not an end website. Have you checked and verified the ip address with the contact organization? Just because you can run a trace route on an ip address does not make accessible.

The cisco could also be blocking the outbound connection at your end.

Hope this helps.

Have a D-Link EBR2310 How can I test it to see if the port to the to the computer is working? The port gren does not light.

You are saying you cannot connect through the router ... Change the ethernet cable and/or try other portson the router.

Does your computer connect to the WWW when you wire it directly? If it will work when connected directly then it should work through the router. That is your test.

Siements 5890 router

When you say HQ is that outside on the wan port trying to ping the Lan port?
Sometimes the router itself will respond to a ping but will not pass ping requests thru as the internal firewall can never be fully shutoff unless you are running your cisco switch as a DMZ 
also are you connecting your other pc's to the cisco or to the 5890.
Instead of shutting off the firewall completely try enabling bridge mode and give your cisco the outside IP addy.
