I just wanted to get you guys know that I've been able to confirm this connection
dropping. I booted into Debian. ifconfig gave me eth0 and lo, but no IP. I ran
dhcpcd eth0 and then apt-get update started connecting. I managed to do that
and do a dist-upgrade to get the latest version of stable. Then I tried editing
/etc/apt/sources.list to change it to unstable and by the time I did that,
the next apt-get update couldn't connect. ifconfig showed that eth0 was gone. I
did get a beef (it was a different kind of beep) after the dist-upgrade and before
the next apt-get update. That must have signaled that the connection was dropped.
Any ideas? Again, in WindowsMillenium, this connection runs fine.
