We've had a 2621 router for some time now, configured the same way for months. Beginning a couple weeks ago we've noticed HTTP return traffic stopping for no reason, and the only way to fix it is to wait for the router to correct itself somehow (15-20 minutes) or reload the router.
The IP cache flow shows no unusual traffic internally or externally, and all other traffic (smtp, vpn, etc.) flows normally.
The router is locked down to prevent any kind of worms and such. The only ports open are smtp, http, 1723 and a few others. I would expect a denial of service attack would be noticable.
I think it's a NAT problem... but I'm not sure how to check it, nor am I sure why it just started happening.
Any help would be appreciated.
