The server connects to the Internet, the tracker is working properly, but after some time the connection is broken. Then the problems begin. I can not properly establish a new connection. My guess is that the problem makes NIE 2.0. I have installed the basic module (without the patch.) Can you help me? Or maybe you know about some tips and tricks?

I haven't personally used a wired ethernet card with my Newton (though
I have an XJack card sitting waiting for me to try), but I have heard
of some potential issues after a period of time. My first question
would be whether you're using a manually-configured static IP on your
Newton or a dynamically assigned IP via DHCP. The former would be
preferable and more reliable.
