I am using an Optus sat. link. 256K down and 128K up. There  is Cisco 
router at this end and tunnelling is used between here and Sydney.

Without the router and tunnelling the the performance in ftp'ing data to 
Sydney was good, but now using the router and tunnelling the upload rate 
is about 3kbps. We are better off with a dial-up modem !

Any suggestions as to what is going on and how may the performance be 

To date Optus have not been very helpful/knowledgable on the problem.
