Ok - don't look at me strangely, but try this:
echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_window_scaling
(on the smoothwall box)
There is a long explanation of why this may work, but I can't remember
Something to do with routers handling window scaling wrongly, and it
only showing up in certain kernels.
See the following thread for more info, this is where I saw it
Just a wild guess, hopefully it works.
