I have a Cisco ASA 5505 set up as a very basic firewall between my lan router and the internet.  Configs are the same in other locations so I am really intreaged here
when I try to telnet to the ASA it drops internet connection, MPLS connection is still working
without a site visit it looks like the ASA locks up.  What gets me is THE ONLY CURE IS TO REBOOT THE ROUTER.
I have been over the config of the router forward and backwards.

Great Hint - Literally -  read the config starting fromt the bottom will make simple errors stand out like a sore thumb for a big hammer.

sanitize and post the config. What does the log show in the router that drops/resets? Are you running the same OS version on both routers?

Good luck,
Steve

after much trouble I finally configured a workaround by using ssh to the outside interface of the ASA
