It may be nothing to do with this, but I get similar problems on my DSL link with the default MTU setting, 1500, and I can get decidedly better performance by reducing it. Windows has some sort of dynamic adjustment, but I've found it's more reliable to set FreeBSD specifically. Try:

#ifconfig <network_interface> mtu 1438

and see if that makes a difference.

There are optimum values for the mtu, depending on your link parameters, and various formulae, but try that first before fiddling more.
