Ethernet Problems with Digital 21140

I am currently using a Linksys 100-TX card (at 10-Base-T) on a network, which uses the Digital 21140 chip.  Redhat 5.0 provides a driver for this chip.


the problem is that the conection only lasts for about 2 - 3 minutes before the network becomes unreachable.  after the network is unreachable i can ping my router, and my gateway, and recieve a responce, as well as anyone else on my subnet...  just no outside connections.  

the same configuration in windows95 appears to be working fine. (ie, same addresses)

thanks for any help!

route add -net your_network_sub gw your_machines_gateway_ip

example:

route add -net 192.168.3.0 gw 192.168.1.200
               ^-- my network sub      ^-- my machines gateway

if you add this then you can now ping anymachine on 192.168.3.0 net

then do the same on the other subnets

oscar, i tried this to no avail.  i am pretty sure the routing on my end is set up correctly, and that it is a problem with the university gateway.

thanks for your help,
