If you're doing a lot of internet stuff with your Linux box, I would
strongly suggest you to upgrade to Linux 2.0.1[12]. This solved a lot of
problems for me, now it behaves really rock-solid on our machine.
If you are suspecting your router, try disabling PATH_MTU_DISCOVERY during
the kernel make.
And also rerun squids configure everytime you patch it. Usually the patches
also change the configure setup.

(BTW, how is the correct way to feed configure/make with a custom
HTTP_XXX_PORT? I still have been to lazy to look it up ;-) )
