It turned out to be failing hardware as the cause of all of the problems.

I have replaced the unit and upgraded to 1.2. I am seeing more than 25% 
increase in throughput between 1.2b8 and 1.2 final.

Excellent work ladies and gentlemen.

P.S.  I relocated my mail server to a different network in NYC in order to 
be able to use it's motherboard.  Replies may get rejected for the next 24

Just a heads up.  I was on vacation for the past two weeks and was 
previously running 1.2b8.  I upgraded to 1.2b9 the day before I left.  As 
soon as I left town the hotspot went down.  When I returned I put on the 1.2 
release.

Symptoms:
About every 20 to 25 minutes the external interface transitions to down and 
then the internal interface follows making the firewall completely 
inaccessible.

I am currently downgrading to previous releases to see if I can resolve the 
problem between outages.

status.php is pretty much useless since it is reset every time I cold boot 
the firewall and fails to show any signs of anything wrong.

I am currently using the generic images as this system runs on a Mini-ITX 
with two ethernet interfaces.  I am not ruling out hardware failure at this 
point but this could also be happening.

Once I get a more thorough assessment made I will post my results.

Regards,
David
