Maybe you could check on the changes from 2.0 onwards regarding, ipf, rtk,
and issues regarding pppoa. I usually avoid Realtek NICs as they manifest
weird behaviour under heavy load. If you have spare NIC try using another
family to replace rtk adapter.

Common problems like mclpool limit reached.

Or maybe altogether, theres no problem with your NetBSD set-up. If you can
borrow and use other hardware like DSL broadband router or using other
means just to eliminate your ISP connectivity issue and get back with your
NetBSD router setup to have something as reference point that your
connection is not clunky.
