I'm trying to set up my linux box with wireless. So I ran iwconfig and got eth1 set up with my network name, and key and everything, and it seemed to be fine. I tried pinging google, didn't work. I figured maybe i have to "release/renew" so to speak (I'm coming from a longstanding windows background). Anyways, a dhclient -r followed by a dhclient seemed to do the trick. I was online. After the 'dhclient', I got this output:

So I'm on my network, get on the internet just fine...for about one minute. After that, the only way to get back on is to do a 'dhclient -r' and release it, then renew. Then I'm back on for another minute or so.
Does anyone know what's going on? Thanks a ton for your help!
