Realtek 8139 (rl) very poor performance

I had some problems with "rl" cards with "auto" media. It happens with some kind of hubs.
Try to specify type of your network media, for example:
# ifconfig rl0 inet 10.0.0.5 netmask 255.255.255.0 media 100baseTX mediaopt full-duplex
# route add default 10.0.0.254
