Hello - I have looked at the related issues people have had with Protectlink & slowness with different routers. We are also experiencing these issue.
We have sped things up, by reviewing a packet capture for a couple of minutes when it was really bad, and getting rid of that chattering program Akamai Technologies software from peoples computers, but we still suffer random slowdowns. We are at the current firmware on the device, users are between 3-8 people, websites that are used for work have been whitelisted, but that does not seem to help when we do hit the slowdowns. (100% CPU usage and 65% Memory usage at these points.)
This may be a silly question, but is there a specific IP address that we should be using as the DNS server for the router, to help it work with protectlink in a more efficient manner? (Currently, we go with the standard of using our ISP's DNS servers.)
Hello. Sadly, this did not resolve anything. Users are still sometimes waiting for up to 5 minutes for things to happen. I'm beginning to think that this router and the Protect Link were just not made for each other.
Thank you for the replies. The temporary bypass on URL requests does help - unfortunately it defeats the purpose as about half the requests appear to be bypassed. We are now in the process of looking at a more suitable replacement options. Thanks again for all suggestions. -Rita
