I recently had some new cables run for my network.  They were CAT6 cables and my network does not seem to work as well.  I have a Linksys WRT160N hooked up through one of the cables to a Netopia 4622 T1 VPN Router.  Ever since plugging in to this new port I lose IP Addresses about every two hours.  However, I have an access point plugged in in another room that does not lose the IP address that often.  I have even tried switching the two (putting the AP on CAT6 line), but that does not work.  Has anyone ever heard of a problem like this before?  Shouldn't switches accept CAT6, but the speed will just be weakened?
