i had the same problems! and i discovered that resetting the modem solved
the problem also. my dsl modem couldn't handle all the connections my
filesahring tools made. i am know using traffic shaper to limit all outgoing
traffic to 90% of my upload bandwidth. no more hangups since then.

give it a try ;-)
