Exclamation box loses network connection


So the other night, we lost power, it flicked back on, then went out again, and came back on, all within about 5-6 secs. Of course I havent gotten my battery backup yet, so my server went on and off with the power. The power returned to normal, and all was good..or so I thought. The box will lose its connection to the netowork maybe every 1-5 hours, its never the same amount of time. There are no error messages, it just goes out. If I reboot the server, its fine. I re-configured my netconfig, totally reset my linksys router to defaults, and it's doing the exact same thing. What should I try or check next? I really need to get this box back to its stable self.

This is a Slackware 8 system, with a Linksys NIC. I may try and swap out the NIC with a different one.

yes, you should try to use another nic, i think that could be the problem, because if you reinstaled the software and there is no error message, the highest probability is for the nic.

cheers!!!

Put in the new NIC, and it seems to be doing ok. I put the old old NIC in another linux box, and it has yet to fail. Maybe It was the PCI slot in the old machine (I put the new on in a different one) or the module was damaged . Oh well.

If this is the Linksys NC100, I've got about 5 of these (hey, $10 from Office Depot. Yeah, they suck, but they're easy to pick up in a pinch), spread out over 4 machines running Slack 7.1 or 8 all having had run about half a dozen or so kernels from 2.2.16 through 2.4.17. I've never had one go kazoo.

Basically the point of that was, yeah, the hardware probably bit it. I hope it wasn't your board man.

Luck,

Finegan

I'm thinking it wasn't the card itself, its running fine in another box. Maybe it just didn't like the other setup or something . Oh well.
