SubjectPROBLEM: Kernel freezes when doing adsl communication
Date
1. One line summary of the problem:    

Kernel freezes when doing ADSL communication

2. Full description of the problem/report:

While doing communication through my ADSL modem connected to
ethernet, the kernel suddenly ejects error messages in
/var/log/messages. I can usually go on working for another
minute or so, and after that everything freezes or start to
behave very strangely. It seems to be related only to some
communication programs, e.g. gaim and mplayer seem to trigger
the problem, whereas other, e.g. ssh, can work for hours without
a problem.

[3.] Keywords (i.e., modules, networking, kernel):

networking, kernel

[4.] Kernel version (from /proc/version):

Linux version 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl (bhcompile@daffy.perf.redhat.com) (gcc version 3.2.3 20030422 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-6)) #1 Wed Oct 29 15:42:51 EST 2003

[5.] Output of Oops.. message (if applicable) with symbolic information
resolved (see Documentation/oops-tracing.txt)

N/A

[6.] A small shell script or example program which triggers the
problem (if possible)

The problem is triggered by running certain communications programs
like e.g. gaim or mplayer. Just doing ssh seem to be find...

do is to do a soft reboot. Any help is extremely appreciated!

Thanks in advance!
