It definitely was the ethernet card. I went out today and bought a full
10BaseT network setup, and plugging into the TP port, the speed went up by
a factor of 10, to 55KB/sec. I then replaced the card (Encore ESL-835-TB
with RealTek 8029 chip) with a LinkSys Etherfast 10/100 (which doesn't have
a 10Base2 connector, which is why I wasn't using it in the first place).
The upload speed picked up to near download speed (600KB/sec, while the
gateway was compiling X...).
I dunno if it is an Encore or RealTek problem, but I recommend against
Case closed, happy ending.
Thanks all, for the help.

Contrary to popular belief, Unix is user friendly.
It just happens to be selective about who it makes friends with.
