Try putting a snooper (ethereal or even just tcpdump) on the outside of
your netgear (if you have a spare hub handy). From those *extremely*
varied hit counts needed to crash the box, I'm guessing that something
else is needed to trigger a failure besides just massive connects.
It may be a race condition or a specific pattern in sequence nunbers, or....
I'm guessing that you could also crash it with multiple connects *through*
the firewall. That would explain your availability troubles.
