Done restart yesterday. Helped a bit. But the main problem wasn't resolved: Sometimes (not always) the site is so slow, while other sites are responding very quickly.
BTW, My personal connection to the internet is great, and I'm not using big size images.

Kind of speed i'm looking for:2-5 seconds per page.
Monthly transfer requirments and usage: Almost nothing. Campaign has not been started yet.
10BT half duplex is very old equipment but if your behind a 10BT router that won't make a bit of deffernce anyways. what type of connection do they say you have to the backbone?
I'm quite satisfied with the speed connection during the nights, so I know there is a good basic to start with:-) However, When I need it, it doesn't work: 10AM-4PM Est. is a nightmare. Is there a clue that this equipment can cause the problem?
Originally posted by NSCNAP Jeff 10 Mbps Half Duplex in itself is a rather slow connection.
I'm starting to suspect that this kind of connection configuration is causing the problem during the day hours.
Again, the speed @ night is great, but the mornings speed is VERY bad.
Sould I ask them to change it? 6 months ago, they changed the connection for my server. Since then the situation has got better, but it's still very slow during their busy hours.
I would go ahead and disable the firewall (do you really need one anyhow?)
Acutally, I'm using their backup service, so I'm not sure I have to use their netscreen firewall. What do you say?
However, is there a way to live the firewall, but to configure it in a way that I can Ping to it? that's the only way I can check the actuall spead connection.
Firewall may slow the average connection during the whole 24 hrs.
I'm not sure it's the main problem. I don't have traffice, but THEY have, and this affects the connection.

Yes. How can I be so sure? Since now it's fast , but within 4 hours it will be very slow.
I've also checked it via some isp, I have very simple graphics on it, I there are no dozens of installaions on it.
Afternoons is the problem.
It sounds like they are running multiple clients though a 10BT half duplex router and when the traffic gets high you are the one to suffer. I would backup, packup and find a better provider. You can get a very good system for $600/month. Just have a look around.

We have a client that I work for who has a VPS server at Interland. It is very slow also. Just FTPing is slow and the website is even slower. It can take anywhere from 5-10 seconds to send a 1KB file through FTP. Then I can turn around and connect to another server and it sends instantly. I'm wondering if it's something on their network.
