I had an issue with this recently as well, only every now and then I 
would get a complete router config.
For me my issue happened to be a switch port was set to auto-negotiate 
and the gateway firewall wasn't, this was causing some major network 
slowdowns and rancid would eventually timeout.
Most people turn off autoneg on their switches/NIC's and hardcode it to 
100/full (or whatever the max speed on both ends is) on both just to be 
on the safe side.
running an scp or a ftp through the environment can give you a good 
indication of how fast you end to end connectivity is.
