Hey, I'm in a networking class and I'm trying to get a handle on this problem but I'm not sure if I'm getting it.

The problem states as follows:
Computer A is connected to a router by a link that is 1 Mbps and has a propagation delay of 1 msec. Computer B is connected to that same router, by a link that is 2 Mbps with a propagation delay of 2 msec.

If I sent a 1000 byte packet from computer A to the router, that would mean it only takes 1msec to get there, right? Is there any other delays I account for in this calculation? And if it goes from A all the way to B, then it's 3 msec? I feel like that makes it way too simple, but I don't know what else I should be accounting for.

I appreciate any help anyone can offer.

Well, the fact that you will never get the full rated speed through the line, but calculating that would be impossible with the information given.
