    Sorry, missed that (information overload :-)

    Someone else recently reported a very similar issue that was eventually
    traced to buggy firmware in a DLink router ADSL:

    Do you have one of those on the problem connection paths?

    Also, check the subnet masks an all of the boxes (especially (4)), a
    wrong subnet mask on one could cause asymmetric routing via your NAT
    device which might be contributing to the problem.

         Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
    usually comes from bad judgement.
