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.
