Hmmm. I'm not sure about your problem exactly, but I was getting crap from a 
vortex 3Com 3c905B-TX running at 100MBit a while back. It wasn't freezing, 
it was just failing to ifup. It turned out to be that I had set the 
Plug&Play BIOS setting on my machine to Enabled, which happens to be the 
most mis-labeled setting on the bios for what it really does.
What kind of hub are you using? Could be a 10/100 speed problem on the hub 
(some hubs rather suck in this respect).

What Motherboard do you have?
