Slow Download Speed with Oracle Linux

I am having very slow downloads (up2date and yum) from my Oracle Linux boxes. A little research shows many (Fedora/RedHat) Linux users having the same problem. I'm guessing Oracle's Enterprise Linux (OEL) has similar issues.
I am following steps outlined ona thread on LinuxQuestions.org and hopefully can report back with positive news. The thread lists one interesting sysctl switch I hadn't seen before...
