Same problem with Realtek NIC, on 2 different m0n0 hw.
We thought this was switch problem, but the Realtek cards sucks!
No problem with Intel, 3COM...
Sometimes when we change configuration, it just freezes, but I can access to
other LAN interface and just reboot m0n0 after this it works fine. Lockups
are completely random, same problem is detected with earlier versions of
m0n0 and newest.
