Are you on asymmetric DSL (ADSL) or some other residential connection s.t. the uplink pipe is
considerably smaller than the downlink pipe?

If so you could be seeing ACK starvation - it's a well understood problem, as is the solution -

This sounds similar to my problem.  When I have my computer on for some 
time, my ndis0 driver with its Broadcom 1350 wifi card sometimes starts 
going very slowly.  And even if this doesn't happen, xorg (I have the 
same gnome and xorg set up as you) freezes up the computer while it is 
exiting.  This is on FreeBSD 7.0 Beta 3.

I reported to freebsd-stable, but I didn't get any response.
