hard to say, but 2.6.32 has virtio-net support, and it's normally
faster, so I'd start there. If you still run into problems you
can always try realtek too. Normally CentOS ports a lot of fixes
back to their dusty old kernel, so virtio-net should really be worth
a shot.

Would help to specify which bug exactly :)
