Did you try realtime monitoring your network interface?
# route -n get <remoteip>
# netstat -I <yourinterface> -w 1
Do you see errors on the interface?
# netstat -I <yourinterface>
Another trick to eliminate disk io from the equation is to use nc:
# nc -o -l 2000 > /dev/null
# dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=50 | nc machine1 2000
