System freezes randomly when online with dsl Sagem 800 modem


I always felt proud of using my linux box for days and never freezing like the old winME days.
But these days came back. The same problem below is presented at suse 9.3 and after updating to 10.0.

I have a adsl connection with a sagem f@st 800 modem.
I downloaded the latest drivers from sourceforge and installed perfectly following the steps given in the README.

From then occassionally my system freezes when I get online, anything isn't responding, at random times. It could happen either in 6 hours or in 30 mins,
while running Ktorrent or not.

I've found a similar thread8 but couldn't understand much and suse has different configuration.

My dmesg is

My system is up to date with YOU.
I've also read that many usb dsl modems don't get enough voltage from the usb and is better to have an independed power supplied usb-hub, but I think if it didn't have enough power I wouldn't be able to connect.

I hope the above help to qualify the problem and if I forgot to post anything tell me.

Problem solved.
Not that the whole problem though, I removed the nvidia drivers and now the system doesn't
freeze at all, probably some conflict in the kernel, only that the desktop really sluggish if I open more that 2 medium load applications.
I'll give it a try installing manually the latest drivers and not from YOU.

Ofcourse if it works I'll give some feedback.

Ok this is the final post the problem solved finally and it wasn't software actually.
I had a 300w power supply and I replaced it with a 400w. I thought that before but I installed a usb hub with external power supply and not from the usb port just because I've read in some posts that the dsl modems require a lot of electric power.

I found out that in linux I follow different steps of qualifying a problem that from what I would do in a windows pc.
