Making changes to Small Rx Buffers and Rx Ring #1 in ESX guest OS to address high packet loss in vm

I have a Server 2008 R2 with SQL Server 2008R2 VM on my ESX 5.1 host that is one of 4 VM's.  For some reason this one guest is experiencing high packet loss.  The information I have obtained from VMware suggests editing Small Rx Buffers and Rx Ring #1 on the guest OS in small increments, but they haven't said what constitutes a small increment.

Anyone know what VMware considers a small increment, is it 512, or is it really small like 1 or 2.....
