18megs in 18 minutes is about a meg a minute, and that is about 20k/sec
which is a pretty typical cable modem speed.. Perhaps a little on the slow
side, but certainly still in the expected speed range.

if you can, try this (as a test): run samba straight from the firewall
machine and try transferring a large file (> 1 meg).. see if it is
signifigantly faster than with poptop in between. If it isnt, then check out
some speed optimisations for samba.. if it is faster, post to the list and
we can dig deeper
