Default Re: The strangest problem in the world.

Thanks for your reply.

We are sure that it's not a NIC problem because in the 2.4.25 kernel version and the 5xxx nvidia driver it worked correctly.

We are struggling at this moment to figure this out but never saw something soo ackward.

Our NIC is an onboard VIA-Rhine with the kernel 2.6.10 module via-rhine.

The key question would be: How in earth's name does a simple ping from a remote machine interfere with theunlockup of the machine? What could it do during the ping response?

Thanks for your input,
