[Gllug] Strange network behaviour

I have a 10/100 Mb switch and a 10 Mb hub. The 10 Mb hub is connected to the 
100 Mb switch.

Well, I have connected two other computers to the hub (a Power PC running Mac 
OS 9 and a nix box). They work fine, connecting to the internet via the 
gateway - which is connected to the switch.

But when I attach my Thinkpad, also running Linux (RH 8) it cannot connect to 
or ping the gateway. But it can connect to and ping another box connected to 
the switch.

All boxes are on the same network -

Even if I disconnect another box from the hub, my Thuinkpad still won't see 
the gateway.

Any ideas?
