Slow network connection, "Destination host unreachable"
I'm new to Linux, and have run into a problem I can't solve:
My network seems too slow to access anything on the network.
My IP is set to 192.168.112.8, mask 255.255.255.0, gw 192.168.112.1.
If I ping the default gateway, I get:
"Destination host unreachable"
...about 10 times, then it starts responding, but with response-times between 7000-23000 ms!
Basically, I can't get anything to work, probably due to time-out because of the response times.
This pc is the same pc I used to run Windows on, and then everything worked, so the hardware should be fine.
I've changed network cable, even tried another network card, I first had the problem in SUSE 10,1 and I reinstalled and tried with Fedora 6 - but it was exactly the same thing..
The gateway itself is fine, works fine from Windows with responsetimes < 1 ms. Also, I tried another pc, and that's the same result as the gateway.
If I check "arp", the listning for the ip address most of the time says "(incomplete)".
I'm totally lost here, any ideas?
