That's fine if you have enough potential customers to saturate your ap's at the 11 meg speed. Out here we'll take anything we can get. If it slows down to 1 meg for a customer that's still much better than his dialup was. We have VERY few customers that get less than 1 meg of actual speed.

So Marlon, using what I perceive to be your ideas below, it's not too bad of a deal to put a marginal customer on (maybe not at -90, but maybe -80 or even -85, or do you think -85 is not even good enough?) so long as we have a clean link and we can make it with next to no packet loss? In my

As a general rule you should not consider any customer if the cannot achieve at least a 5.5 mbps connection. Consider the numbers below and then make your decision. At 11 mbps link you can transfer between 5.2 mbps and 6 mbps depending on a number of factors, so let's say 5 mbps for easy math.

The Ethernet standard maximum packet size is 1500 bytes (not counting the header). You can use jumbo frames in GigE applications, but not in 10/100, and not all switches support them, because there is no standard. Jeff Broadwick ImageStream 800-813-5123 x106 -Original Message- From:
