Lately my Debian machine (Thinkpad T22) is getting barraged with TCP Keep-Alive packets from my LInksys router, at a constant rate of around 15 packets/sec. Each packet is 60 bytes. I'm having trouble figuring out whether the culprit is my Linux machine or router. I have a few other pc's running XP on my network and they're problem free. I tried upgrading the router's firmware but that didn't help.
Can anybody suggest how to determine where the problem is?
Here's a sample packet I sniffed with ethereal. Every packet looks like this one (except for time, seq num, etc.):
Right ... that mac and ip belong to my Linksys router. I know that's where the packets are coming from, but I'm trying to figure out why. I would just conclude that the router is malfunctioning, but it's odd that only my Linux box is getting flooded and not the other pc's on my local network.
Could there be something in my Linux machine's network configuration (or otherwise) which is soliciting this flood of packets?
