I added 'Ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"' to the .vmx file and the
interface is now known as wm0, Intel i82545EM 1000BASE-T. The FTP transfer
is about the same, but seems a bit less constant - probably an issue with
my Kurobox.

Now that those numbers gave me hope, I'll try using correct benchmark tools.

Thanks both.
