i am running debian with an ne2k ethernet card. for some reason, after awhile i cannot communicate with my dns server. the problem appears when a program other than netscape attempts to resolve a url. after that, i cannot even ping the dns server but i can ping any other ip. i have a box running red hat 6.2 set up to masquerade for the this lan, but the other computers on the lan don't seem to have this problem. i have tried using both a 2.2 kernel and a 2.4.5 with no effect. i can't figure out what is going on.
