Could you try:
- if concurrent flood pings between cbgb an dpern improve the throughput
with 2.4.16 and HTTP?
 # ping -f pern
# ping -f cbdb

- Could you check what happens with 2.4.16 if you revert to the tulip
driver from 2.4.14?

Copy the entire linux/drivers/net/tulip/ directory from 2.4.16 into 2.4.14.
