I've tried 3COM, Intel, DLink and realtek NICs. I've tried AMD and Intel 
CPUs. Ive tried with and without harddisk (I'm running the bootable CD 
version 1.2). I've I've disabled serial ports, PNP-OS, used old junkyard 
machines and brand new dell servers.  .. you name it - i've tried it. The 
box still locks up once in a while. In my case the frequency of lockups is 
about 1 week now.

There' s no P2P traffic. But i have noticed, that when the device locks up, 
usually theres one or more terminalservices sessions running/timing out.
