[svlug] Very slow FTP login

I have just set up two brand new machines, one with FreeBSD 4.9, and a
second for a workstation with the Xandros 2.0 Linux desktop. I just
connected them (Plus a windows machine), through a new Linksys BEFSR41
All seems well, except when I try and connect through ftp from the Linux
machine to BSD it does connect... but... very... slowly. It takes about
three minutes to prompt for a user name, the password comes right back, but
then another three or four minutes to get a prompt and allow access to the
host. From then on things are as to be expected.
Anyone have any idea why just the login would be so slow?
Thanks for any help,
