That machine is running a 2.4.22 kernel with 32 meg of memory and
since it is a 2.4 kernel, iptables is being used.  I never messed with
any priority schemes - frankly really haven't learned how yet:).  I've
wondered about priortizing packets or something.  I'm pretty much
using default buffer sizes on the ifconfig configurations too.  I just
thought I could speed things up some given that others in the general
area get faster throughput.  Though those people don't live right in
my personal neighborhood either.

Someone else commented that machine speed shouldn't impact network
speeds and I didn't think so either but figured "who knows?" the
packet forwarding and such would take some proccesser power I would
think; hence my questions in the first place.
