the system has two realtek network cards. both seem to work correctly -
i've no connection problems - connection performance is ok.

dns seems to be ok. all requests are resolved correctly ...
default gateway should not be the problem cause without ppp (dsl) this
system is the default gw for the rest of the intranet and with ppp the
default gw seems to be ok too.

as mentioned: really bad performace occurs when lauching mozilla, gaim,
gnome2, etc. ... when mozilla is running the perfomance seems to be ok
... possibly a bit too slow but i do not know how to proof this (?)

i suppose a udma/disk/controller problem. i found out that the
southbridge i use (VIA 82C686B) has some bugs. but in fbsd 5.0 release
notes i found a bugfix for that so i am not sure about it ...
