I've got some problems with my raq2. I want to set up the machine
as an internet gateway, because it can be perfectly silent if
you change that little fan.
The problem is that network performance is extremely bad.
I can transfer about 1MB/s at the very best. When it runs as
a masquerading router for my internal network performance
goes down even more. I can now ftp about 64kb/s to the raq.
Of course, I didn't expect that this little CPU would be a killer
router, but:
tessa:~# uptime
 02:01:21 up 55 min,  1 user,  load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00

There is essentially no load.This machine is about 95% idle.

I'm running Debian and the standard 2.4.26-r5k-cobalt.
I could not compile the current CVS kernel, but any hints
are greatly appreciated.
