Default route disappears from kernel routing table second after adding it

okay, i've got a dell inspiron 8600 with an intel 2200bg wireless card built in, and it seems to have installed correctly. I'm using Fedora Core 3, and i get a response when i ping any machines on the local network, and i can copy files over the network fine. It's getting on to the internet that's giving me issues.

When i type in route, i get one entry, as follows: * U 0 0 0 eth1

The default gateway is set correctly in my network configuration, but the default route is not being added to my routing table. If I add it manually, it seems to disappear after a moment.

If I run:
route add default gw; ping (insert outside address)
i receive the first three or so packets correctly (ie they got out and back), but then I start receiving "ping: sendmsg: Network is unreachable".

If I run:
route add default gw; route
I get two lines, * U 0 0 0 eth1
default speedtouch.lan UG 0 0 0 eth1
as expected.

However, if I then run route again, my default gw entry has disappeared.

Why does my default route keep disappearing???

(I posted a similar msg in the wireless form in late 2004, and it didn't get solved, do i'm trying here, as i get the same problem with LAN)

I don't have a /var/log/warn, but in /var/log/messages the following is repeated over and over:

Mar 13 19:23:38 192 NetworkMAnager: HAVELINK: act=0 && (dev_crypt=0 <= prev_crypt=0)
Mar 13 19:23:38 192 NetworkMAnager: HAVELINK: act=0 && (dev_crypt=0 <= prev_crypt=0)
Mar 13 19:23:38 192 NetworkMAnager: LINK: !HAVE=1, (best_ap = 0x0 && (is_enc=0 && (!source=1 || !len_source=0)))

Any ideas?
