I have a some what strange problem (which could have an easy and obvious solution for all I know).
My problem is that when I've booted ubuntu (now 10.4 but same problem with 9.10) and turns it off it starts sending a HUGE amount of data via the ethernet cable, so much in fact that my router can't handle it and stops responding.
As far as I can tell the computer is completely turned off with no fans spinning. I can add that if I boot windows I do not have this problem, just when exiting ubuntu.
There are two "fixes" for my problem:
- Pull the ethernet cable until the next boot
- Turn off power to the PSU and wait for the capacitors to unload
Is there anyone who knows what could be going on? I'd be happy to post some logs or conf-files.
Currently I'm using the ethernet port on my motherboard which is a Asus P6T Deluxe V2 with an updated version of the BIOS (maybe not the latest but since it only happens when I've been in ubuntu I don't wanna mess with the BIOS too much).
The router is a D-Link DIR 655 with the latest firmware.
I've now reinstalled ubuntu (with 10.4) and I still experience the same problem.
Well I still haven't found a solution to this problem :(
