Cisco 1300 Series Bridge dropping connection

I have 2 Cisco 1300 Series devices connected as a wireless bridge.  1 of the devices needs rebooted daily or sometimes 2 times a day.  The other device has been runnning for 10 weeks with no problems.  I have to unplug the power and plug it back in for me to access the device via a browser.  Yesterday I was looking through the configuration and found the time had not been set on either devices.  I modified the time so the logs would make more sense.  Today after I rebooted device 1 and went to look at the logs it had reverted the time back to 2002/2/28!?!  Is there a internal cmos battery on this device that is going bad?  I have also attached the configs for both.

Also here it the log from the good device.  I'm not sure if this helps.

I had a similar problem with one of my switches.
I tried to figure it out for over a year.
Then we had a major power spike hit our facility and I started having the same problem in a second switch.
I have concluded that small and large power surges and spikes weaken the electronic components over time and the only solution is to replace the unit.
I have since made sure that all my surge protectors / UPS's have automatic voltage regulation  (AVR). This helps but does not eliminate the problem. Lighting can induce damaging surges in all sorts of cabling, from power feeds to lan cables.
Now if have problems like this and can't solve them in a reasonable amount of time I simply replace the unit. It's a lot less frustrating, but sometimes it can be expensive.
We get a lot of lightning here so I don't buy very expensive equipment any more.
