My ADSL connection to my ISP is currently being traffic shaped by the provider of the ADSL connection (different from my ISP). My ISP can not get them to stop doing this, and it is having a serious impact on my available bandwidth. What seems to be happening is that when I max out my 32 kibyte/s download bandwidth for more than a few seconds, the traffic shaping cuts in and drops the available bandwidth to only 5 kibytes/s! If I stop all traffic for 2-3 seconds, the traffic shaping stops and the normal 32 kibytes/s is available again.
To prevent this from happening, what I want to do is to get my Cisco827 ADSL router which is running this connection to provide a hard cap on my download speed so that it never exceeds (say) 31 kibytes/s and never triggers the traffic shaping. My ADSL connection runs on PPPoA. I am running IOS 12.3(13a). Is there a way to do this?
