All I see is you 'try ubuntu' and it hangs after 30 minutes
do you mean:
   -- nothing happenned for 30 minutes and then you gave up looking at
purple screen?

   -- it worked fine, was able to access the internet etc... but after
30 minutes it suddenly hung?

If it is the first option, then there is no reason to believe it has
anything to do with network... could be anything.

Try googling:  'Try ubuntu purple screen'

There are various possibilities, lots of them display card related,
and the work arounds are usually BIOS or kernel settings...

Do you have an Nvidia card?
