Network stalls after IP change
I have two Fedora FC7 machines connected to my DSL line. Things were working fine until the ISP disconnected the service. The connection is now back, but with different static IP addresses.
Previously I had both servers configured via static IP, however I changed them to DHCP so that they would pick up their new public (and actually static) addresses.
Things are okay in that I can SSH into both machines, however any attempt to download a large file results in the connection stalling. It starts fast and then rapidly (within a couple of seconds) goes down to zero. It does download some of the file, so it's really stalling and not just reporting bad information. I should say I've tried this with many files from many servers.
I've no idea what I've done on these two machines to screw them both up in the same way. It's not the cable or router as if I pull it out of the linux machine and plug it into a Windows machine then I get the full 8MB service with no stalls.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could look at to debug this?
