"I'm trying to spec-out an x86 machine to run OpenBSD to act as a filtering bridge. The 10/100 Mb NICs currently supported under OpenBSD that I've looked at have anywhere from 4KB to 256KB of on-board buffer. Is there a recommended minimum amount of buffer to avoid dropped packets for a 100Mb network under full load (100Mb transmitting, 100Mb receiving)?
