This is close to my situation. Our proxy server is on a 100Mb/s ethernet
and one router away from the LINX in London which we also connect to at
100Mb/s. I'd rather the router spent all it's time routing those 100Mb/s
packets than searching filter tables!

Especially at those speeds (well, if you use ciscos anyway - which we
don't :)
