If it involves computers or electronics, I probably do it.

I have experience with Exchange, Sharepoint, Zabbix, Powershell, Hyper-V clusters, and a whole host of other things.

If you need to contact me, my email address is my first name at my last name dot ca

comment Stacking Servers on top of each other without a using a rack
The question is not if the table can handle it, its whether the case of the server at the bottom of the pile can. It likely wasn't deaigned to do that.

comment Can't use “eject” to identify the server
Audible ping and pull cables until the beeping stops? If they didn't want me unplugging then they would have labeled then :)

Check the configuration on the Cisco ASA. If it's set to just a static IP, copy the IP/subnet/gateway settings to the laptop. If it's set for PPPoE, set that up on the laptop (and probably call Verizon for the password). You might have to do this after hours to avoid irritating the rest of the staff :) If the speed test is still low direct to the laptop, yell at verizon until they fix it. If it's fine, the problem is in your network. Ideally run a speed test through the ASA just before you disconnect it to compare to.

Have you done a proper speed test by plugging the modem directly into a laptop and running the speed test from there (configuring PPPoE if needed)? That test usually instantly determines if it is an ISP issue or an internal network issue.

@Tomtom it DOES rock. Its a pain to configure the first time but it lets you see how well your stuff works for a dialup client during a thunderstorm without leaving your desk.

@tomtom The documentation for dummynet (which pfsense uses) says it can introduce delays.info.iet.unipi.it/~luigi/dummynet/#3d2a You can configure how many ms of delay to add.
