I have made some changes. Removed the wireless card and got a Cat5 cable between the router and linux box to minimise problems. Created a different fixed ip address for the wired connection. It's been running for about 5 hours and still going - the longest yet.
DHCP is renewing since the setting in the router is 3600 seconds. It is also telling me that the wired ip address is a fixed ip - the others have renewal times listed. It has been fine since the change to wired. I have just changed back to wireless again and it also reports fixed ip address in the router settings.
Why would DHCP renewal cause the problem? It is giving the same ip address to the same machine when renewing, even without a fixed ip. Why would this confuse the network?
