Re: net unavailable
i had similar issues with a Dlink 4 port NIC running Debian 3.0 and the sundance driver that was included with 2.4.18 (stability problems). I compiled my own sundance.o (newer version from the web) for my kernel, which solved the problems. I installed a second firewall last week (same hardware config) with Debian 3.1, which worked out of the box.
Maybe recompiling a newer version of your NIC driver and using this module will help.

The interface is a SOEKRIS 4 port NIC with ... kernel module NATSEMI
in the log:
" Jun 28 14:35:12 fw1 kernel: eth3: Oversized(?) Ethernet frame spanned

does anyone knows more about this problem ?
