Ok,  after a quick crash course in ethereal including compiling and
 installing it, Here is the capture,  This log has been filtered by time
 before and after where the drop out occured as well as source and dest IP's

(frame.time_relative >= 343 && frame.time_relative <= 347.2) && (ip.src == || ip.dst ==

Then saved (this info here for making sure I didnt screw up the logs)

The error occures @ time 2 seconds after beginning of capture

attachment available upon request, the list wont let me post it and I dont 
have a reliable space to throw it up on the net
