Could you try creating a new VM using the GUI tool, then check if the
networking works from it?

I was having problems with KVM and part of the troubleshooting process
got me to try it on SL6, which finally led me to discover that the
command line tool generated XML doesn't work as well as the GUI tool
for some reason. So there's the possibility that it could be that the
definitions created through virsh in 5.6 has the same issues in CentOS
