I have a Ultra 1, with Solaris 2.5.1, The network interface goes away after a while and i go to the console and make a ping or a telnet anything that sends a packet to the outside world and everything restores to normal no fault can be noticed after a while about 15 minutes the net vanishes form the outside, but from the inside as i said before, here is nothing wrong, a packet goes out and the ouside sees me again, with the interface down i have made a trace route and it goes as far as the router to the correct segment and the host simply does not respond, i have tried to work around it with a cron tab entry that makes a ping every 10 minutes, but i am not very confortable with his method, i fist thouth some patches were minsing, so i aplied the network patches, and kernel patches, and the rest of the recomended patches ecept the one of sendmail because i heve the one of berkley,
some one, gave me some kernel configuration parameters to change, it seemed to work for a day or 2 but the problem came back again, so the failure is intermintent.

have any ideas how to test the hardware, of the native ethernet card le0, i would realy apreciate a solution to this problem, i had fixed the mac addres in the router and it dose not help much, it is realy anoyng.

It sounds like your router is losing the MAC addr of your work
station. Have your network folks check to make sure the timeout
is setup correctly.
