By the way, man page of tcpdump says below about "dropped by kernel":
packets ``dropped by kernel'' (this is the number of packets
that were dropped, due to a lack of buffer space, by the packet
capture mechanism in the OS on which tcpdump is running, if the
OS reports that information to applications; if not, it will be
reported as 0).
Probably no relation to the network problem.
