Make sure you are running with the TCP/IP NewReno optimisation turned
off. There are bugs in the TCP/IP NewReno code that result in bad
packets and hence lots of retransmission with generally reduced network
I think its meant to be the default now in -CURRENT (to have NewReno off)
but I'm not sure if PHK has disabled it yet.
$ cat /usr/local/etc/rc.d/nonewreno.sh
sysctl -w net.inet.tcp.newreno=0
echo -n " no_newreno"
$ sysctl net.inet.tcp.newreno
One day hopefully NewReno may be fixed as it sounded worthwhile.
