30 meter Lockups

6500 locks locks up on on 30 meters when on lan only. No problems until I switched from direct pc connection via extra nic card to the lan. Cable modem/router has 4 ports. It's located 3 feet from the 6500 so I just used a 6' jumper to the router. All other bands are fine via the lan. Never a lockup but on 30m all I need to do is tap a few dits on the key and within a few seconds the screen freezes and audio stops. Wait for a few seconds, it unlocks and looks normal but freezes again on its own with no key tapping and keeps doing it....If I keep provoking it eventually it will freeze and become unresponsive to the mouse. Obviously RFI was my first though. I reduced power to zero....Totally zero...I even listened on another receiver to be sure my power was zero.... There is no change...tap the key and again it locks up. but ONLY ON 30 meters. This is not random. It happens every time and is very predictable. Usually I can switch bands and all is well on the other bands but if I go back to 30m she locks up again. If it gets too locked up I have to reboot the rig. When I connect back to my nic card everything is fine again.... Full bars on the green indicator - ssdr Latency says max of 2 and sometimes 4 ms when on the lan. Less than 1 ms max when on the nic. So what is different about 30 meters? I sure don't see any. Steve N4LQ

Factory reset did the trick.  DUH
Thanks to all.

BTW: Manual has typos in paragraph about resetting the 6500.
