I regularly run 1000MB of data over my soekris' ethernet.
The Interfaces are 100Mb/s but in reality you're doing well
if you get 50Mb/s THROUGH it. The whole box costs less than
high perfomance cards I've bought. It's a not hugely fast
CPU, and the SIS network cards
1) share an interrupt
2) are designed for low cost/part count rather than performance.
A 3.3V PCI card COULD be put into the 4x01s though.

Given where their market is, really doubtful. It can't take
full speed on the 2+ 100Mb/s ethernets. (but it will send 1000MB
given a little time).
