A p133 should be able to forward packets at 128kbit with ease. What else
are you running on the router? (eg, if you are running squid, it might
causing the bottleneck ;)

Is anyone interested in running some throughput tests between their sites?
Not just  satlan-connected sites, but all round the place would be good.
It'd use a few megs of traffic a time, and saturate the link for brief
periods, but a reasonable mesh of sites would give a fair approximation of
what connectivity between consumer-level services are like.
