Since my last email I have changed of ISP to have a wider bandwidth.

My two Debian boxes (1 Etch and 1 Lenny) both manage to connect without
any problem to the brand new DHCP router modem (which is no more
a SpeedTouch 530).

But the installation still fails. I'm attaching to this email
the new debian-installer log obtained with the new ISP and new DHCP
router modem. This was obtained with 20090126 daily netboot image.

So I would tend to conclude that this is not a local network problem,
but rather a hardware one.

I have one other experiment I'll try tomorrow: installing another
machine on the same local network. I'll keep you posted.

I didn't manage to do that. Could you give me the command lines please?

Sorry, I haven't had the time to try this option yet.

Thanks for your time,
