Hi-

The network coneection is going down in some of our workstations.
we have to bring up the network every few minutes, using ifup eth0, by 
physically coneecting to the machine.

This is happening on lot of our machines which uses a Linux 7.1 to 9.0.
This problem started 10 days back. Before that we never had any problem for the 
last one year.

any suggestions as to what could be the reasons for eth0 going down suddenly.

thanks-
