No, I am using a cable modem.  Also, I don't have any iptable nat'ing
going on.  The strange part is that I can post the exact same files to
another server, and that server works great.  It is my new LFS server that
I am havig a problem with.  The new server is on a wireless connection,
but I can download huge files from the Internet without a problem to it.
So, I am assuming that it isn't it's connection.

Thanks for the reply,
