It shouldn't. ez-ipupdate is supposed to save states accross a reboot.

I did not do it in the lab where I set it up. It was then sent out to a
remote site. And if you have adjusted POST aggressively, and boot off a
fast flash drive, it boots very quickly! Fast enough that you only loose a
few packets every few minutes.

It is a new system. And it passed burn in. It only started in that
environment. Since this started, I have turned off DynDNS, and PPtP to see
if one of my services is causing this. So far, no luck. If I can't solve
this, I will cross ship another box, and bring this one in to find out what
is really wrong.
