Easy enough, I use it in a pretty similar situation on a 4801 with
about the same throughput.  With something like 50-75 firewall rules
(the rules scale extremely well, that's not your problem).

From the sounds of it, my first guess would be you have a duplex
mismatch between the m0n0wall and something.  Does the router or
anything else involved have forced speed and duplex?  Since you aren't
forcing your m0n0wall to the same (that you mention), that would cause
a duplex mismatch, which would cause the performance problems you

Check Status-> Interfaces and see what they all say.  Then check the
devices m0n0wall is connected to on each side to make sure it matches.
