Realtek 8139 (rl) very poor performance

I'm havin' a strange problem with my Realtek Network Adapter. On boot, the
detection looks just fine:
$ dmesg| grep rl
rl0: <RealTek 8139 10/100BaseTX> port 0xd000-0xd0ff mem 0xee000000-0xee0000ff
irq 10 at device 10.0 on pci0
miibus0: <MII bus> on rl0
rlphy0: <RealTek internal media interface> on miibus0
rlphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto
rl0: Ethernet address: 00:40:f4:32:e5:12
However, the performance is very poor. Some examples:
* using 'fetch' command, I get a lot of "timeouts", so some "ports" fail to
install (I have to retry).
* using Konqueror, for instance, I also get some "timeouts" and a very low
speed connecting to different websites.
I've done the some test on the same machine (and on my laptop) using
GNU/Linux, and works pretty fine. So I discarded a network hardware issue as
the origin of the problem.
Thank you all in advance.
