A lot of things could be heppening here.  You nood to do some serious 
troubleshooting in an error state.  You will also need a console on the 
m0n0wall.  When it fails, is the console showing anything?  Is it 

On another system, look at it as well.  Is there any arp table oddness? 
  Is is still link OK when frozen?  Same behavior on all ports?
