Hello Rafal,

can you please check the version of the 8169 driver?
For CentOS5: elrepo/el5/x86_64/RPMS/kmod-r8169-6.016.00-1.el5.elrepo.x86_64.rpm

This changes this one kernel network driver to a completely different version,
but is said to help a lot... (I have one such network card, but that seems to work
stable with the normal/stock CentOS-6 version.)

best regards,

Florian La Roche
