kernels > 2.6.10 slow network connections


when connect from an WinXp machine to my sarge server with a 2.6.10
kernel, connectivity to the server is great.
However, when i upgrade to a 2.6.11 up to a 2.6.14, performance is
not great at all.
With connectivity i mean IMAP & smb. I keep my mail on the server and
check it via imap. I also have several shares on the server that i
access via smb.
With a 2.6.10 kernel, my mails popup fast & i can access the shares
without a problem. With one of the newer kernels, the performance is
horrible. Opening a mails is very slow but when i try to download an
attachement, then the computer waits & waits. Same story with samba. If
i go to a share and for instance want to delete a file, it takes ages
for the delete popup to appear.
I'm not sure where i need to look to know what's wrong? Where do i look?
What is wrong?
Maybe a module changed of my network cards that could be the cause of
this? How do i check that?
