Ok maybe I should try a 18-10VDC power supply too instead of the one
supplied by soekris (12VDC/1.25A).

I have 3 soekris 4501 devices, all having the same reboot problem.
I do not use any wireless cards my self.

How to do that? I only know the serial interface and the exec.php option..
no real shell access.
