New 100/15 Line. Only seeing ~35Mbps across firewall, ~95Mbps without.

I have a pfsense box with the following hardware:
Intel Server Board S1200KPR
Intel PRO/1000 Pt Dual Port Server Adapter
Intel Core i3 3220
8GB DDR3 RAM
I'm only seeing about a third of the bandwidth that I am supposed to be receiving. Computers directly connected to the modem are seeing upwards of 85-95 Mbps. Any ideas? My hardware should comfortably support a HUGE pipe.
Check for a duplex/speed mismatch across one or other of your interfaces. Probably from the modem to pfSense. Some modems are supplied fixed at 100M FD and pfSense will attempt to auto-negatiate, fail, and fall back to half duplex.
Run a test from the pfSense box itself to find out if the limit is on WAN or LAN. E.g.:
[2.0.3-release][firstname.lastname@example.org]/root(2): fetch -o /dev/null http://download.thinkbroadband.com/50MB.zip /dev/null 100% of 50 MB 1961 kBps 00m00s
Obviously that site may not be close to you so choose one that is.

check MTU on WAN as well

yes, this is WAY overkill, a atom can route this easily, are you running any packages or other things on the box that you need this?
