Odd problem: Gateway unreachable after certain amount of time (Win XP Gateway)
Ok, so I have this odd problem... After a while my network connection will just die and I'll have to reboot my Linux box (Not quite sure how to restart the net connection with the XP machine serving as a DHCP server - anyone wanna tell me?). Wmnetload reports packets sending, but I'm not recieving any.
I've tried doing ifconfig eth0 down and then ifconfig eth0 up, but that doesn't do jack except ensure that I don't have an internet connection (instead of sitting there trying to resolve hosts, it'll instantly give me host unreachable whenever I try and access a website). I'm assuming that's because I need to restart DHCP - however that's a little difficult to do because once I log out of root DHCPCD closes. I think. I'm not sure, I'm going from what seems to be apparent.
Sorry about the lack of information, but it's kinda difficult to reproduce and I can't do it right now (mother is asleep and me moving back and forth between machines would wake her).
