Imaged Debian 6 ASUS EeeBox computer - IPv4 issue

From: Jonathan Burishkin 
------------------------------------------------------
*iSeriesAccess-5.4.0-1.6.i386.rpm on Debian 6 GNU/Linux 32-bit.*
*ASUS EeeBox EB1007.*

After I imaged a Debian 6 system, and ran: rm
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

The system seems to loose connection every 3 minutes or so, when I first
boot I see a ipv4 address and ipv6. After it looses connection I only see a
ipv6 address...

Maybe its the IBM iSeriesAccess software? Maybe wicd? maybe I need a
different network manager?

Its rather odd. I switched from wicd to network-manager and the same thing
happens.

I found out that after a user uses iSeriesAccess then it freezes, the inet
address (ipv4) is not listed in ifconfig;
but when I run /etc/init.d/network-manager stop (or same thing with wicd)
the inet address (IPv4) shows up and it works again....??!!

This may be an issue with the network?
When I have the computer in same building as the server room it does not
lose connection at all. When I have it in another building a couple miles
away it looses connection.
But, the Windows computers with IBM iSeriesAccess don't loose connection
and neither do the old Neoware thin-clients running some old Linux system.
