> I have setup a plain 550Mhz PC with Monowall, two NIC cards one is a cheap  $9.99 card and was
testing the system.  The test setup is current internet -> T1 router/firewall -> switch -> monowall
firewall -> switch -> My PC.  In this test config I see much higher lantancy then I do with My PC on
My network as normal.  Current internet -> T1 router/firewall -> switch -> My PC.  The question is
this a problem with My test setup, or the Monowall PC and NIC cards are just not that great.  As
this is a test setup My PC is the only one behind monowall.

one - what make of cards
two - are you using the poll option (if compatible) in m0n0 for the cards
three - have you checked the duplex of the link
