You've been told the following, *repeatedly*:

Your hardware is not capable of keeping up with the level of network traffic
it is being subjected to.

Reaaltek cards and the 're' device driver are a *BAD*CHOICE* for systems with
heavy network traffic.  They're merely 'medium lousy' on a lightly-loaded 
system, but you don't notice the problems under light loads.

You have two choices:
  1) "live with" the crappy performance
  2) get a better quality network card.
