I'm in an internship from hell, please advise!

I'm a third year Elec Engg student, now interning with IBM (I know, I know ... great company, huge opportunity, blah-blah-blah). That's what I thought when I started. However, it's not turned out that great. I expected to work on cutting edge development stuff, but no dice. I am in the Network Support Services dept, and all I do is maintain servers, install softwares, do minor troubleshooting - not what I was expecting at all! I'm frustrated and depressed, it's a 16-month internship until Aug 2012 when I return to school for my 4th year. I'm just about ready to walk into a wall, please help! I don't want to quit, I want to complete my internship, but I'd appreciate any good advice to take me through the next one year.
