Try doing a hard reset of the unit and then monitor from then on seeing if any effect repeat itself. To my knowledge, this particular model has reach its shelf-life thus no longer in active production/support. Advisable to get a newer NS-5GT model, else more information from the NS unit itself would be helpful.

Figured out the problem.. someone had installed a 5 port switch onto the network and had the rj45 looped back into the switch.
