First off, thanks for such a wonderful resource. Lots of great info on here. I followed r0nni3's excellent howto setup for the ASA 5505 and have one glaring issue that I'm trying to overcome...speed.
The 5505 is slated to replace an aging (and dying) IPCop firewall in our office, so it's duty will be pretty light. We have a 50Mb Comcast line coming into the office, and when that line is plugged into the IPCop I get a consistent 40-50mb downstream and 10-12mb upstream. After following r0nni3's primer, I do have internet connectivity on the 5505 but I cannot get any faster than 2-3mb/sec down, and less than 1mb/sec upstream. Any idea why?
I've included my config in the hopes that we can determine if this is a config issue (likely), or a hardware problem (just unpacked it today).
I dont see anything standing out in your config. Try hard coding the interface to 100/full or what every it should be.
Thought I should explain a little better =P. I had a asa with a similar problem, I didn't see any errors on interface, but setting it to 100/full fixed it. I believe it was because every time it lost a packet do to collision it was setting tcp windowing way back down and it could never really get going.
