Cable modem / Internet / Edgy 6.10 daily

There is something serious wrong with Edgy networking conenction,
via ethernet ( could be driver related) that is effecting downloading,
within a short time, the connection STOPs ( can't even ping out )
have to reboot the machine, then all is well... have included some stat's
for a Network Guru, to figure this one out. ( or maybe) edgy is still very 
buggy. ( just would like to surf, with out rebooting every 30 mins or so. )
Please note: did not have this problem with Dapper 6.0.6.1 at all.

Thanks -
Rich

PS:
when using ifconfig ( compare to window ipconfig) in windows, we could
release and renew, how does one do this in Linux ???
