DEC 21142 drops line after 5 seconds

Hi all,

I just installed Linux (2.2.13) on a Compaq 1800 series notebook that
says it has a DEC 21142.  After the usual "ifconfig x y z up", my hub
shows a steady connection for about 5 seconds, and then, as the first
package comes in from the other computers on the network, it drops the
link (hub starts blinking).

Any idea what might be causing this problem? IRQs and addresses seem to
be OK, rx queue indicates length 0, tx queue says it has a size of 100.
