I don't think my line is capable of that rate. I think I can currently
push only about 1.5 Mbps peak. Clearly webalizer is misreporting.

It's nothing but an inexpensive Athlon 3000+ with a pair of SATA hard
drives in a software RAID 1 configuration, running a few virtual
servers, behind a cheap wireless router configured to forward certain
ports. Load rarely goes above 0.1. The biggest bandwidth consumer is a
bunch of static media files; my sister makes digital video and puts it
on the site.
