I recently leased a godaddy.com dedicated server, and while they didn't
offer freebsd as an option,  I used the fine guide at
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/articles/remote-install/ to get freebsd
installed. I noticed that the installation was taking a long time with ftp
as the source media, but I had thought that maybe I just picked a bad


After the install was complete, and I started to install some ports, I was
still seeing really slow download speeds. I then decided to see if something
was wrong with the system by downloading the same image from the same source
that I downloaded on linux in order to bootstrap freebsd and the speed
difference was appaling. It had downloaded at 10.29 MB/s. Once freebsd was
installed, It will only go at 60KB/s..


I have tried messing with the options mentioned here:




but that provided no results.



Here is some info about my setup:

dmesg and the output from sysctl net.inet are attached as files
