Okidoki ;)

Basically I have a home network connected to a DSL. The connection is
negotiated by a FreeBSD machine with dual NICs. One NIC connected to the
internet and the other to my hub. I also have a mail server connected to the
hub and a workstation and a laptop.

                        | - Hub -

well this picture will certainly not come out right, but the idea is that
all machines except .0.2 have one NIC connected to the hub. 0.2 has two NICs
and is gateway/firewall. This machine also does all the necessary port
forwarding and such.

Actually, I have had this setup successfully for a little over two years,
and I recently bought a new computer and I gave it the same physical
location as the old desktop. (i.e. same TP-cable and the same place on hub).
I can't quite see the physical setup of the network as cause of the current

Thank you for all your help so far, I have to leave for a few hours, but am
still thankful for all your efforts
