PIX 515-R - Connection Drops

I'm hoping someone can assist...

I've been having a major problem with our Internet service.  Our ISP insists it's the firewall.

I'm not a Pix expert by any means, but here's what's happening:

- Our Internet service drops.

- When this happens I try to ping the PIX on the inside interface and it times out.

- Our Internet service comes back up and I am able to ping the Pix.

- I connect to the Pix and issue a SHOW INTERFACE command to look for errors.  I FIND NONE.

Beyond that..I don't know what to do!  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Nick

Please upgrade the PIX to the latest version of 6.3.x, or disable fixup h323 as you already did

What version is your PIX firewall? and also did the PIX crash? is there any output when you do "show crash".

Did the PIX reload? you can check out when it lasts reload by issueing "show version"

Cisco PIX Firewall Version 6.3(1)
The flash device is in use by another task.

It appears the Pix crashed about 4 hours ago.

I saw an article relating to this error.  It suggested disabling the h323 protocol: no fixup protocol h323 h225 1720

Thanks for your assistance!
