virtualbox-ose-6.1.22
I have noticed that using bridged networking with any of the emulated adapters that network performance is poor. I particularly notice when trying to scp files to a Linux guests (RHEL 8.3, Alma 8.4), Solaris 9.  I found that networking is normal if I select virtio network on the guest.  I have switched physical network cards, and the problem persists.

Try to disable HW offloads on NIC:
ifconfig igb0 -rxcsum -txcsum -vlanhwtso -lro -tso4 -tso6 down up

That made a world of difference.  The nic works normally.
Thank you!
