I use a RaQ2+ as a router, and I use eth1 as the Internet port, and it
goes down but not often, maybe twice since I put it up, probably 3 months.
eth0 keeps working an that is the Intranet, so it's not much of a problem
to go in and restart eth1
When I read your message I thought it was strange the you had trouble with
eth0 and I eth1.
gotta love those RaQs
