Inconsistent ethernet internet access
The internet is fine on the XP computer, but with the Debian I get strange results. It will work sometimes very well, but a few minutes later, it will time-out trying to connect to google.
I've tried booting Knoppix, and it has the same problem. It can't be a hardware problem with the NIC I'm using because I tried two different ones (One from Linksys and another from Compaq).
One thing that bothers me is that the internet will only work --either on the XP or on the Debian box-- when the modem is connected into one of the regular slots on the Linksys router, not into the Internet slot.
When I set up the ADSL, I put the DNS Servers into the modem, not in XP.
The main thing that baffles me is why it works wonderfully sometimes, and terribly the next minute.
