  Anyone seen anything similar.
  I have a 3c905b NIC and Cisco 675 ADSL.

I have done tcpdump under Linux, and there is packet traffic.
However there seem to be packets coming in out of sequence.
In my /var/log/messages I get messages like

Mar 25 01:45:41 socrates dhclient: DHCPNAK in wrong transaction.
Mar 25 01:46:26 socrates dhclient: DHCPACK in wrong transaction.

It does work under Win98.
I can send the various tcpdumps and the /var/log/messages
to people individually.
