Description Juan Velásquez 2003-02-26 02:22:22 UTC
Description of problem:

I'm having a problem on an IBM Netvista  running RH 8.0, kernel 2.4.18-24.8 
I've narrowed it down a bit but still haven't found the solution. It keeps 
freezing only when I'm connected to the network and I am downloading http or 
nntp. FTP and SMTP do not seem to cause the freeze. I'm running Redhat 7.3 and 
is also happens when I try to run the Update Agent. I've checked all my logs 
in /var/log and can't find any messages that seem related to the freeze...I 
never get a core dump or anything, it just freezes. It happens in any browser 
or news program. IMICI also causes the freeze and it happens in both GNOME and 
KDE. It doesn't happen everytime at the same place, sometimes I can surf for 
an hour, sometimes for 2 minutes. Any guidance anyone can provide will be 
greatly appreciated.
