iirc odd length packets were a problem with some 2.2.X kernels you may try
2.2.19. It may not even be the fault of your Amiga so ping the next gateway
or something to be sure. The IP packet len may be anything, it is embeded
into an ethernet packet of at least 64 bytes and this is the only len the
hydra driver would deal with.
