Question Karmic freezes when downloading files

Hi! I recently have made a clean install of 9.10 on my laptop, which previously was running 9.04 without much issues. Everything was looking nice and dandy until I launched firefox and tried to download some files from the web. So what happened is that my system completely freezed, requiring hard restart. It happens all the time at random point of file downloading. It is possible for example to download some web-pages or smaller images some times, however, when going to larger file it freezes. Same happens when I am downloading restricted drivers from ubuntu HW manager, or using my local FTP server with Nautilus FTP client.

I've reinstalled karmic without home encryption using ext3, however that didn't helped much. In syslog I often see following lines as the last ones before freezing (not sure if this is related):
Nov 5 06:05:40 hostos rsyslogd: [origin software="rsyslogd" swVersion="4.2.0" x-pid="674" x-info="httр : / / www , rsyslog , com"] (re)start
Nov 5 06:05:40 hostos rsyslogd: rsyslogd's groupid changed to 102
Nov 5 06:05:40 hostos rsyslogd: rsyslogd's userid changed to 10

Almost forgot, I am using Atheros AR928X Wireless Network Adapter as my network interface. Also, when running live cd for a small time, I wasn't able to reproduce the freeze.

Any hints or clues on this nasty issue?
