It will be easier to read than if pasted into kmail, I think.
I suggest that you dedicate a runlevel, say 3, to debugging this
problem. For RL (runlevel) 3, disable as many services as
possible--making it almost the same as RL 1; then re-enable only those
services that get you basic network connectivity. Note the configuration.
Then re-enable more services until network connectivity is broken again.
The last service that you enabled will probably be the culprit.
I didn't see you say specifically whether or not you installed the beta
version of Etch. Certainly if you still have the beta Etch, it's a good
idea to update; I know, it's a catch-22 with the network down, but
sneakernet (walking CD-ROMs from one machine to another) is an option.
You could be facing a bug in the beta that has been fixed in the release
version of Etch.
Back in RL 2, see if you can get the output from "route -n" before the
connectivity is broken; after connectivity is broken, do another "route
-n" and capture the output; post both output files here.
BTW, the "script" command is great for recording all text data from a
