Don't the benchmarks show a 4801 capable of routing 20-30mbit/sec
(without VPN) though?
My home connection isn't very busy, but I get the throughput I'd expect
out of it... 3mbit/256kbit cable with Adelphia.
I'm using shaping/queuing, but not much else. Net4801 and m0n0 1.2b3.
CPU is rarely over 25-30%.
Supposedly a pentium 200 with decent NICs is able to route a 100mbit
line under GNU. Is the FreeBSD routing code that bad, or is there
really that much of a hit from firewalling and shaping?
