Are you sure you see N "hashes" not khashes or even MHashes? This seem to be very slow. If you are mining Bitcoin you can calculate your estimated time to generate a bitcoin block here:

Furthermore you are on the namecoin forum. While namecoin is nearly the same like bitcoin it's not exactly the same. Perhaps you might want to have a look at the bicoin forum:
