This sounds vaguely familiar...  Based on my previous experience, I'd say
your problem has nothing to do with CVS.  It's your network card's driver.
Update it or get a new NIC.  (I had very similar problems with a 3Com
3c905 Boomerang a while back.  Replaced it with an EtherExpress Pro and
haven't had so much as a hiccup since.)
