Does the MOBO have two on-board network cards? If so, then try the other one. If not then maybe try another card.

As an experiment you might try:

1. working in safe mode
2. Disabling AV software temporarily

Does the PC need to be restarted after the freeze or does it come back?

Onboard NIC could be defective... try another one and see if the problem goes away.
