geez, makes me wonder if I should even bother to leave mine running with 
a 50kbyte/sec uplink ca (thats about 500kbps)...   if I raise the cap 
much higher, it seriously throttles my home network (6Mbps in, 700k 
out)... I know, I know, I should implement some form of QoS or packet 
prioritization at my firewall.
