This will give you twice as many buffers (or 4 times if you don't have GATEWAY
in your kernel). Double the above to 2048 if the problem persists. I use 8192
on wcarchive, which is enough for 1000 ftp users (about 2000 TCP connections).

   Rebuild netstat; the networking structurs in the kernel have changed.
