Thanks for the reply. I did try that and it didn't change anything, MRTG
still thinks it is a 100Mb link.
If all else fails, you can always edit the .cfg files and set the MaxBytes
value to the appropriate amount. This is annoying though, particularly if
the cfgmaker is run automatically.
I could do that, but my bigger concern is if MRTG is reporting the max
bandwidth as 100Mb, is it accurately reporting the in/out speeds?
