 Subject:  Wireless downloads causing m0n0wall to crash
 Date:  Sun, 26 Dec 2004 16:19:36 -0500
I setup a new m0n0wall system about 3 weeks ago.  I'm using a soekris
net4801-50 and I bought an 802.11b miniPCI kit from netgate.com

Ever since I setup m0n0wall, it has crashing whenever I download more
than a few megabyte from a wireless connection.  My wired systems
don't seem to be affected.

Here is the output I see on the console.



m0n0wall console setup
**********************
1) Interfaces: assign network ports
2) Set up LAN IP address
3) Reset webGUI password
4) Reset to factory defaults
5) Reboot system

Does anyone have any ideas?  This wasn't a 1 time thing.  I can repeat
the crash time and time again simply by wirelessly downloading a file
that is more than a few megabyte.
