I don't have one, but I'll make an educated guess based on a lot of
other performance testing I've done.

As someone else said, it really depends on packet size and various
other factors, and can vary quite a bit.

Well...  I can push 40+ Mb through a Soekris 4801, 266 MHz, in a
filtered bridge setup (the setup that documentation is written from,
actually).  Primarily HTTP traffic.

So I would say 18-20 Mb constantly, with spikes to 30 Mb, should not
be an issue at all with a 400 MHz.  It should probably be capable of
spikes in excess of 50 Mb.
