Ok, I can confirm that setting up the network is not the problem, nor
is it pinging other hosts. But ssh-ing into another server
made it go boom. From the screenshot I attach it looks like something
in TCP code (that explains why it does not happen in pings), below
I see tcp_data_snd_check

I managed to swithc in time to a console with tail -f syslog before
it hard locked up. The log files are empty, but I got a screenshot photo
which has some hopefully useful information. I cannot scroll up or down
anymore ...

If you want me to create a bug report or you create one in bugzilla,
I can also upload it htere, but I attach it for now.

Best wishes
