Hi, My Linux Server Network cuts-out after 10 mins. It says its still connected but when i try to ping google or my laptops IP it gets a 100% loss. Also when i try accessing it via SSH/Putty for Widows 7 it wont connect. Any suggestions?

Does it have a static IP address? Are both fans running? It could be overheating.

This could also be a bad network interface.

What, if any, troubleshooting steps have you taken to try and narrow down what the problem is?

We have placed a "Watch" on any messages that come up if it Cuts-out, also we have uninstalled the driver (rmmod) and re-installed it.

I'm not sure what you mean by a "watch" but if the interface is misbehaving, the simplest way to ascertain if it's a bad one or not is to try another network interface you know is working.

If this one is an onboard (ie: nailed to the motherboard) then disable it in the BIOS and stick a NIC in an expansion slot and see what happens. If the replacment doesn't do it, then the other interface was bad.......leave things as they are.

If the behavior continues, you've ruled out the NIC and now know it's a softare, driver, or TCP/IP stack issue.
