Default Network Speed Issues - Not ISP Related

I had a server crash on me (hdd) fail and I decided it was time to go from my 300mhz pc to a newer more efficient openbsd firewall.
By the recommendations on this site I went with an atom processor supermicro.com/products/motherboard/ATOM/945/X7SLA.cfm?typ=H
I have a single stick of 1gb of ram in the box.

The machine has dual nics built into the motherboard (re0, re1)

I went out and put the latest Amd64 OpenBSD 4.6 on the computer.

When I use the dlink router that my ISP supplied then I get 15mb down.
When I use the following configuration on my bsd box I get a burst of 1mb and an average of 300kb.

the first thing i did was enable ipforwarding
my /etc/ppp/ppp.conf file contains the following
     set log Phase Chat LCP IPCP CCP tun command
     set timeout 0
     set redial 15 0
     set reconnect 15 10000
     set server /var/run/ppp.sock "" 0177

     set device "!/usr/sbin/pppoe -i re0"
     set mtu max 1492
     set mru max 1492
     set speed sync
     enable lqr
     disable acfcomp protocomp
     deny acfcomp
     add! default HISADDR
     set authname myusername
     set authkey mypwd

then i edited /etc/rc.local to the following
/sbin/ifconfig re0 up
/usr/sbin/ppp -ddial pppoe
then i set my pf.conf to allow all in and out going

What am I doing wrong? How can I improve my connection speed?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
