No, ipfilter hard codes the limit. Not sure if that's something that's
changed in newer ipfilter versions (latest m0n0wall is FreeBSD 6.4,
latest FreeBSD is 8.1) so may change in the future, at this time
that's the case though.

Generally a wash, as long as you're talking PCI-X or PCI-e, not PCI.
The latter is too slow for full gig speeds.
