I ran a SparcStation 5 with the 170MHz turbosparc with a QFE as a
router/firewall under NetBSD. It could handle 15 Mbps cable and two
internal networks with about 60-70% CPU usage, IIRC.  I eventually
replaced it with a Netra T1 because it didn't have a lot of processor
time left over for userspace and it had trouble with things like torrenting.
