Hi Tony,

The problem is with any interface (eth,wlan&ppp) Unfortunately the eth nic is onboard... and I have tried shuffling the wireless card around.

Funny thing is though, the machine works great with the old hard drive in it.... although the M/B is a bit suspect, I remember having problems with it before.

Looks like its gonna be a rebuild of the system... shouldn't take too long! (famous last words!!)

  Now, everytime I try do ANYTHING with the network interfaces the program I'm using locks up (not the machine though, I can still get around in other tty's)

    For example: ifconfig, ifup xxx, ifdown xxx, wlan start/stop or anything around there locks.
    I can't even kill -9 PID it.. 
  Is it just the wireless card or is it any network interface?  if it's a PCI based system, have you tried swapping cards into different slots or removing one then trying to ifup the other? 

    Any thoughts on what could be causing this? 
    Im reluctant to start again since Ive put a little over two weeks into this one machine... 
  Smells like a hardware conflict.  Shuffling cards may help.  Another possibility is a motherboard or other issue, so you may need to prepare to do a bit of hardware swapping.
