I think Ethernet speed should be more like 10-20kB/sec... but remember
that MAD Max has really small network buffers, so any network congestion
is most likely to cause playback to skip. You could avoid this by using
a proxy server in between that buffers a large amount of data before
streaming it to the Newton. Such a proxy would be pretty easy to
implement, probably a couple of lines of C code. The NHttpLib library
which MAD Max uses already has proxy support.
