I don't know exactly what you mean...I had to google a bit :-)
And tried the commands below...
The network card is
May  8 14:51:59 localhost kernel: eth0: RealTek RTL8139 at 0xd0834000,
00:08:54:25:9d:b2, IRQ 16

I've got the same one in my system at home, and i've never had problems with BT.


# ifconfig eth0
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:08:54:25:9D:B2
          inet6 addr: fe80::208:54ff:fe25:9db2/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:7035 errors:1 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:6491 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:6789791 (6.4 MiB)  TX bytes:908291 (887.0 KiB)
          Interrupt:16 Base address:0xe000

Try running:
ethtool -s eth0 duplex full

is BT causing the lockup immediately, or after some period of time?

also, what kind of motherboard are you using?  did you verify that
you're using the latest BIOS?
