Shalom,

Take a look at /var/log/messages

Tehre may be a helpful message. I'd think a networking issue.

You may need to reinstall the OS.

What do you mean by connect it to the net?

It starts unplugged and then you plug the network cable, or start the network service after boot?

Re: Computer freezes after connectiong to the internet

the connection type is broadband. the cable is plugged into the network card at boot. i am sharing a connection and it comes to my pc through a router. the router is connected to the broadband provider's modem. the problem only occurs when i am using the net. offline it seems to be ok.
