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.
