I've had an issue for a long time on my Ubuntu system where after a number of hours I can't connect to or see the machine online anymore. If I go to the machine itself I can access the network, browse the web etc and the network manager tells me the connection is fine. However I can't ping or ssh into the machine remotely until I reconnect to the network via the network manager tool.

I am running 11.04 (Mythbuntu) and I'm using the default network manager GUI tool. I have a static ip setup on my home network which connects to a Linksys WRT54G router (WPA2).

I haven't figured out how long it takes before this happens but it seems like after a few hours of idle time is when it disappears. Possibly overnight.
