Understand. Your wired is:
Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)

However, you also have a wireless:
 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. Atheros
AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

And I was wondering if perhaps NM was enabling both devices at the same
time & possibly causing the slowdown/dropouts.
