Disabling IRQ # 16

Hi all,

I have a little problem concerning my network.
When I start up Mint and open my webbrowser I can surf normally.
After a time I get a beep with following message in my terminal:

message from syslogd@*
*kernel: Disabling IRQ # 16

I've checked my networkcard and saw that the ip was changed to 169.168.*.* (or simular). So I put it back to dhcp but no change. Keep having that beep and message.

Sometimes I get it back working but mostly I have to reboot.

Someone any ideas?

"Disabling the "PNP OS" option in BIOS allowed Ubuntu/Linux to set the hardware/IRQ stuff itself, the result of which was this problem going away. " ... abling+IRQ

May Help?
