Just in case anyone has a similar problem and since I never got an
answer from the list, I thought I would share what fixed the problem.
Turned out to be a NIC issue. The 3Com NICS in my m0n0wall were set
to auto-negotiate speed and plugged into HP Procurve Switch ports
that were set to auto-negotiate as well. Going in and setting both
the switch and the cards to 100-T Full Duplex fixed it. We are back
to less than 2 minutes for a big copy now.
Thanks for a great firewall.
