Suspect that you have miss configured the paths to authoxy. Can you test the speed of the direct link to your MS proxy server using say Internet Explorer and then do the same via authoxy using say Safari. We run Authoxy on a number of machines from a G3-500 powerBook (mine!!) to G4 powerBooks of the students(!!) without any speed impact. Also on an iBook-500 - goes well.
Have you included HTTP and HTTPS but a direct link for FTP? Have you got a clash of port 80 or 8080 on the powerBooks, for example have you enabled the local server on the powerBook. 127.0.0.1:80 is localhost. Have you enabled NTLM authentication with the correct domain name. Separate the proxy port (suggest 8080) from the MSProxy server port 80) We too are running 100Mb links and authoxy works well... won't comment about the rest of the (Windows managed) network.
