The problem is still here for me running any version of this driver either from Ubuntu or Realtek themselves. I have even tried emailing their tech support for help and the drivers they sent me still cause the same problems, some even worse than before. For me even if I am not connected to anything just have the driver installed I get the hard lock up and have to do a hard reboot and then restart again to get everything going correctly again. I have to resort to using a USB dongle for wifi and leaving the driver out of the system. Funny thing is my USB adapter is a realtek as well just different chip version and it rocks no issues at all. I am on a toshiba x505-887 running Ubuntu 10.10 Kernel 2.6.35-23-generic, nvidia driver.

I have done every possible combination to confirm its this driver alone and for my system its only this that makes it unusable.
