The RealTek 8139 (rl0 and rl1) are pretty shitty network cards, the cheapest
available (I can buy them for GBP £2, about USD $3). I only use them to
connect my ADSL modem to my firewall because they're so cheap and performance
is not an issue there.
You'll almost certainly get much better performance with some more expensive
3Com or Intel cards.
That may not be the only bottleneck of course.....
