These should be no reason why you have to reboot your NAS every few days. What I would recommend though it looking into a new one. The NSLU2 is complete garbage IMO. I bought one for a cheap solution at home and retured it an hour later...

If you have some spare hardware laying around I would recommend you look into using freeNAS: http://www.freenas.org/

Just for info, we have a couple NAS boxes here at work and one is built on FreeNAS... an experiment.

None have ever needed to be rebooted! Nor have they.  As simsjrg states there should be no reason, ever, to reboot a NAS.

I installed one in a small company and so far:

Got one corrupt excel file - had a back up, was saved.  
User demanded a log in - rebooted and was fine.

This freeNas is being recommended a lot - my problem is free time :-)
But I would have been better staiting with freenas in the first place.

But will do.  Thanks for you help.
