I am using m0n0wall version 1.233 with an adsl line. With this version the
freezes also happen. But to avoid restarting the firewall all time it hangs
up, I activated the watchdog in the device (I am using a WRAP device), so
that it is restarting automatically, when it hangs up. Since that time I
never had to restart the firewall again.
