Probably your CPU is adequate, and either there's something wrong
unexpected, or those interfaces are too crufty for 100 Mbps.  If you
have PCI slots and can try some other kinds, especially if you can find
an intel card that is fxp(4), or DEC that is tlp(4), it might help.

Run 'netstat -s' on the gw before and after the speed test, and diff the

download a large file.
