Our Cisco 4331 router works fine for about 24-48 hours then the WAN interfaces 'stop' working.

Ie. from the router's IOS I cannot ping the Public IP address of the interface.

It was all working fine this morning but -

Right now I cannot ping 69.161.211.94 on GE0/0/2  - despite the IP address  being directly bound to the routers interface.

After a reload it'll all start working.

What could be causing this? What data can I collect to debug etc?

 
69.0.0.0/8 is variably subnetted, 4 subnets, 2 masks
C        69.161.211.72/30 is directly connected, GigabitEthernet0/0/1
L        69.161.211.74/32 is directly connected, GigabitEthernet0/0/1

C        69.161.211.92/30 is directly connected, GigabitEthernet0/0/2
L        69.161.211.94/32 is directly connected, GigabitEthernet0/0/2

Is it running latest firmware? I understand it was working since a couple of days ago, but checking if it's updated it's worth it.

Anyone notice the Input Queue was at its max???

Input queue: 376/375/5110/1 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops

This caused the interfaces to stop...

temporary workaround, :

1.      Increase the hold queue.

config t
int giX/X/X
hold-queue 4096 in

2.      Applied acl on the interface to block the packets causing issue.

ip access-list extended BLOCK_NTP
permit udp <ADDRESS_OF_VALID_NTP_SERVER> any eq ntp
deny udp any any eq 123
permit ip any any
