pkg_add down!

i have set my PACKAGESITE to ftp3 and ftp10 and then monitored the 
throughput with my "packetshaper" and it looks as though there is a 
problem.  I use pkg_add -r perl and pkg_add -r nessus-plugins noth of 
them going to different ftp servers one on 3 and the other on 10 however 
checking the ftp traffic flow during this process is a little concerning.

It will start some traffic not much in the 500 bytes to start the 
transfer but then drop to 0 for minutes at a time.

I am running FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE #0: Thu 
Nov  3 09:36:13 UTC 2005     
root at x64.samsco.home:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386

if I go to the ftp site with my browser it seems to work fine.

What should I do as the package never seems to download.  is there a 
queue on the ftp servers?
