[svlug] Very slow FTP login

Hello all,

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,
