My 'net connection fails a lot :(
I've tried many Linux distro's, all have had this problem. Currently, Mandrake, since it is easy for me.
My cable conenction is configured via DHCP, and it is set up to use DHCP. My NIC is a D-Link 528CT, an NE2000 clone, using that driver as suggested by D-Link.
Now, after say, 10 or 15 minutes of use, I lose my Internet connection. I can only get it back by unplugging my modem, then plugging it back in, which is kind of like the manual way to get an IP address from my ISP.
I really wish I could get this figured out.
