ISP<-PPP->LINUX1<-eth->LINUX2 works and then dies after usage.
The routing is a snap and works fine, but after a few file
transfers ARP dies on the ethernet link. (both 3com and SMC
cards on all kernels 1.2.0->1.2.8.

The single COAX, 2 TEES, and two 50 Ohm termers are fine (tested).

Anyone had similar problems with the same setup?

Also wierd, on the 1.2.8 kernel, if I configure the 3COM drivers,
the PPP link will not nego'. Hangs.  It makes on sense at all.
Something seems to be seriously wrong in the kernel.

Anyone have the ISP<-PPP->LINUX1<-eth->LINUX2 working?
ARP does not die??
