Very sorry for the delay in replying. I can't think of any reason
off-hand for this behavior. I have OPT1 bridged to WAN as you do...I
just temporarily disconnected my WAN port for a few seconds and
reconnected it. So far, no signs of problems...it's been about two
minutes since I did this.
What kind of network interface are you using for the WAN interface?
(I'm running 1.1b16 on a Soekris net4501.)
