What version of FreeBSD are you running.  I've been experiencing
wierd packet loss recently, which I suspect is a result of arp
wierdness or routing table largness.  It's a CURRENT box, ~1000
hosts behind it, ~1900 routes - not large by any stretch of the
imagination.  Packet loss doesn't seem related to bandwidth.
