I think I may have more details on this:

The mono box did not freeze overnight without traffic shaper enabled, and 
only WAN link connected (PC off on bridge/opt1).

Then I enabled traffic shaping, and left it overnight again (only WAN link 
on), and this morning it had crashed again.

So, I think it has to do with traffic shaping on, and only WAN link on, on a 
bridged config (WAN-OPT1), after a while, it seems to srash.

I dont think it has ever happened while both the OPT1 and WAN links are 

I'll keep testing.
