Laptop freezes with LAN plug in

Specs: Windows XP, HP Compaq 7400
My laptop runs fine with a wireless connection (lynksys router) but when I plug in the LAN it becomes unstable and eventualy freezes all together. I have tried bypassing the router and going straight from the modem (ADSL) with the same result. i have disabled all network connections and started a new one to see if that would help and I managed to get a days work out of it before the problem came back. The connection seems to be ok some times as long as there are no major demands put on it (but freezes as soon as you step it up a bit) and other times it freezes before windows even loads. Any ideas?

Sounds like a bad network port. Is this the case if you connect wired else where?
