A variable latency cut through bridge (210) for selectively forwarding data packets (10) within a network (310) of computers (312), the variable latency cut through bridge (210) employing a variable latency bridging method wherein the latency factor of the variable latency cut through bridge (210) is set according to the position of a variable threshold point (428). The variable threshold point (428) is optionally set to within a rapid drop off portion (520) of a probability line (514) describing the probability that the data packet (10) is bad as a function of the amount of the packet (10) which has been examined within the variable latency cut through bridge (210).

Title
Variable latency cut through bridge having variable latency threshold point being configured dynamically for forwarding packets while the bridge is operating
