What does mii-tool show before you lose the connection?
Try mii-diag (mii-tool is a cut down version of mi-diag), which can be
downloaded from http://www.scyld.com/diag/. You'll need mii-diag.c and
libmii.c to complie.

Try using a different port on the hub. Might be that your port is dodgy, or
the cat5. After that try borrow another pcmcia nic and see if that makes a
difference. Something might be causing the card to re-negotiate. Watch the
link lights on the hub and nic.
