Sorry to barge in on a thread like that, can you discribe your net and procedures been taken??
westk[@westk03]:/home/westk> uname -a
2.6.11-1-k7 #1 Mon Jun 20 21:26:23 MDT 2005 i686 GNU/Linux

I don't know. I googled for how to disable ipv6, and accordingly, on the
box that can't see beyond the router, changed /etc/modprobe.d/aliases:
#alias net-pf-10 ipv6
alias net-pf-10 off
Even after a reboot this made no difference in the behaviour.
>have you thought about rolling your own kernel?
Yes. But stock kernels usually work fine for me, and I'm surprised this
one doesn't. In the meanwhile, I've rebuilt the box to rearrange
partitions, and in the process have made it possible for me to drop back
to a 2.4 kernel which is working.

Can't get to that machine at the moment (must not have enabled ssh
incoming yet). I'll post it later.
