    Wired Internet Connection Freezes

    Hi Guys, hoping someone can help me with this one because its doing my head in.

    For the past week or so my internet connection has been freezing for about 30seconds to a minute every so often.

    A ping request running in the background right now shows no errors trying to get out, it just doesn't do anything while the network is frozen (I've been running a ping to google since I started the PC and in 385 ping requests it's frozen 8 times.

    This computer is fine when using windows :S

    Things I've tried:
    • A full reinstall (with a seperate /home that was left unformatted)
    • Updating driver to use r8168 instead of r8169 (i've had no issue with this drive since 12.04)
    • Leaving PC on for hours and then running a ping command. (no difference)


    What Information should I be giving you guys?

    P.S the only thing that has changed since this was work is I put in another 8gb of ram (now 16gb total) and I put an LED light strip into my case

    Thanks

    Ok so I just tried using (and currently am) using a live cd. The connection is fine :S even using the dodgey r8169 drivers :S

    Could something in my /home be screwing this up?
