OK - step by step.

What kind of down is your network (think is unable to ping too ?)

Shows ifconfig your network-interface ?
Are there collosions and errors beside your ethx in the stats ?
How and why takes its ages to reactivate ?
What you're doing therefore ?
What says /var/log/messages at downtime ?
What kind of services are you running (samba/web or simply routing) ?

Reply the anwsers.
