There is a bug in virtual box with IPv6 handling over a bridged network.  When the bug is present the top transfer speeds for IPv6 are around 18kb/s.  Since RHEL (and derivatives) prefer IPv6 when looking up hosts, it is not uncommon to get an IPv6 host address for updates.  To disable IPv6 on the guest add these lines to /etc/sysctl.conf
