i have a private subnet with a laptop, and my home workstation linked
through ethernet and a simple hub.
The workstation makes the connection to the internet, thus makes NAT etc
to allow the laptop when connected to access the outer world...
Now usually this works fine, but i noticed that when the laptop is
connected a longer time (means more than 1-2h) the internal net becomes
to speed things up i need either to reboot the laptop, or to make a
constant ping onto the server, hell knows why, this speeds up teh things
but the ping sequence is really strange:
64 bytes from 192.168.0.23: icmp_seq=61149 ttl=255 time=1000.4 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.0.23: icmp_seq=61151 ttl=255 time=490.4 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.0.23: icmp_seq=61153 ttl=255 time=0.6 ms
that's the rhytm of the ping, a very short response (which seems
normal), a longer one which is allready preocupying, and in
incredible long one....... this trio is repeated at infinitum...
so i am quite perplex about what's happening... and take any suggestion
to try to find out more about the eventual problem, and any solution to
solve it (rebooting is a bit cumbersome..)
