Yeah!  Hey Soekris!  Are you listening?

Consider upping the spec of the ethernet cards in the new soekris board to
decent gig ethernet cards.

From my brief google searches, it looks like the Soekris boards use the sis
driver, and the DP83815 chipset. That sucks. I bet a decent fxp 828559
chipset with link0 enabled (interrupt mitigation) would perform a lot
better.

What is the ethernet chipset on the WRAP boards?
