I just set up a NetBSD box as a router/firewall with altq+pf and dhcp 
(static addresses given out by physical addy).

Everything is working just peachy for my OS X laptop (which I did all of 
the testing on), and was (before today) working just fine for my linux box.

Now, the linux box is able to get an address, but unable to ping 
anything outside of the subnet.

Any windows boxes that connect to the router get an address and 
everything works just fine for about 15 minutes, but then suddenly the 
computers no longer can access the internet - they still have an 
address, but cannot get outside (sort of like the linux box - but the 
linux machine can't access the WAN at all).

Any ideas?  I can supply any and all info you request.
