I'm pretty sure it's not the router.  At full speed it can talk to
local machines at about 8-9 Mbps, which is way faster than the
upstream goodput via monkeybrains.  I just checked again and it's
averaging about 4 mbps down and 240 kbps up goodput through
monkeybrains' network to a one of my utility boxes 6 hops away (via
cogent, ugh).
