I have the v2.2 WAP11 also.  I haven't had Chris' problem (mine's been up
for 3-4 weeks straight), but I am having a different strange problem --
when I try to pump lots of data through it the TCP connection will hang.
Subsequent new connections are handled fine, and SSH terminal sessions
will stay up for hours with no problem.  I'm wondering if it's a problem
with packet or frame size; going to try some testing this week and try to
narrow it down.

I was hoping for a magical firmware fix also, but as Chris said, none
available yet.  I'm really happy with the feature set of the model, and
the price is right.  We'll see whether this little wrinkle gets worked
