If you have any laptops with Atheros AR8152 network adapters are likely to experience freezing when installed Debian linux derivative such as Ubuntu, LinuxMint, etc. I have proved it on the laptop which Thosiba Satellite C640D sepesifikasi network controller is Atheros.

code :
$ lspci - nn | grep "Atheros"
02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc.. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) [168c: 002b] (rev 01)
06:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications AR8152 v2.0 Fast Ethernet [1969:2062] (rev c1)

Kernel/architecture (including 32 vs. 64 bit):
