This uptime is the longest thus far and the network still seems ok. Since my first use of r29193 on this router, it has seemingly shutdown all external interfaces after uptime of 4+ hours. That is, all previously connected devices indicate "disconnected" from the network. The first indication of trouble is a user complains that his wireless device cannot connect to the router. A power off/on reboot restores the network until the next instance of disconnection.
I wouuld appreciate any suggestions for collecting more data on this issue. Perhaps a more precise uptime would be useful, but I have found no way to automatically capture/determine uptime before the router disconnects external interfaces.
I may have discovered a temporary remedy for this issue. Immediately after rebooting the router, I clicked "Apply Settings" on the Setup->Basic Setup page. Limited regression testing seems to indicate that this fix works. That is, after reboot without the Apply Settings, the router disconnects all devices after 4+ hours uptime.
