Yep, wee little beasties get the life sucked out of them when they have 
to do encryption. IIRC, having them as VPN end points causes the same.

My D-Link DIR-857 ('Dualband HD Media Router') also has a non-standard 
implementation of Samba, which is just a joke.

IIRC it was Richard who tried to use NFS with his equivalent for his 
media, and had to give up on it.
