751G-2HnD keeps locking up

I recovered a 751G-2HnD from a customer's site, and
replaced it with a simpler RB750G because the client
kept complaining about the RB locking up.

A reboot of the RB was his only solution.

I have installed this 751G-2HnD in my office and use
it to handle my local network traffic, and queues, and
Internet access.

Everyday so far without exception I have had to restart
the RB because the network traffic is blocked and the RB
(winbox) isn't accessible. The Ethernet port LEDs flicker
but that's all.

I upgraded the RB to RouterOS 6.4 (F/W: 3.09) in an
attempt to help unravel things, but to no avail.

Any ideas ?

Have you tried re-installing the OS with netinstall? You may simply, just have a bad router.

Thanks for your response
My apologies for having left this question open

In fact Mikrotik support helped me figure this one out: it was the web proxy that was causing the dysfunction. Once this option was disabled the router stopped freezing up.
