In testing our new T1, I found that with a download pipe set to 1544 kb/s
during a file download the traffic graph (external to m0n0wall) was very
uneven - up and down. Setting the pipe to ~1470 allowed a higher overall
download speed and the traffic graph was almost flat. I'm not sure why, but
that's how it was. Guess that's why "they" say to use only 95% of the total
Also, pick a download server that's not maxed...Microsoft's was
decently fast but uneven. Adobe's Acrobat Reader patches are big enough to
test with and their connection seemed much better.
