I am not using centos but debian. But I've seen similiary problems when 
I changed my setup from "native kvm" to "kvm with libvirt".

Check the iptables output for dhcp and dns forwarding from the host to 
the vm. I solved this issue by not using libvirts networking definition. 
Instead I manualy create bridges and just add the vm taps to these
