you give very little information on the linux box you're running, but let me

Since you're from Germany I believe you're running SuSE, maybe 6.2?

And you're having a 100m ethernet card, maybe Intel etherpro 100?

Well then it may be the buggy driver that comes with SuSE which disconnects
the linux box periodically from the net while on load. Get yourself the
driver from /drivers/net/yourdriver.c (or so) from the official kernel (e.g.
from, in case of the intel card having revision 1.06, compile it
give it to the system and you should have solved the issue.....

Other than that, I can't guess ...................
