Now i had the time and tried some different settings (also according to
the informations on the page Peter Garrett provided - thanks for this)

...and now i have these settings, without a loss in throughput (in my
tests here):

/etc/sysctl.conf
=====================================================================
# increase TCP max buffer size
net.core.rmem_max = 1048576
net.core.wmem_max = 262144
# increase Linux autotuning TCP buffer limits
# min, default, and max number of bytes to use
net.ipv4.tcp_rmem = 4096 87380 1048576
net.ipv4.tcp_wmem = 4096 65536 262144
=====================================================================

This is on 2Mbit/s down and 196kbit/s up

bye Thilo
