Is there troubleshooting assistance for me. I managed to get Zeroshell going everything is working fine but wlan just stops working after (roughly) 6 hours. This has happened everyday since I built the box.

wlan0 is not bridged but on its own segment. the device is.

[wlan0] Ralink corp. RT5392 PCIe Wireless Network Adapter

Assistance is appreciated. Rolling Eyes

Anybone? Any suggestions?

I've reduced the power output to 15db; so the wifi doesn't drop but there still is no connectivity the next morning.

Hi,
Seems like a hardware issue, maybe an incompatibility.
I have no exp with this interface, but you should try to update the firmware file. I also compiled an updated version of hostap that support wifi AC. You can get and try it it from here:
http://jb68.com/pkg/
Also check my post abut how to install new hostap and firmware locations:

I am running both interfaces described in the post, in the same time each with 2 SSIDs, one from each in a bridge and one independent and I had no issues for more than a few months.

I appreciate the reply, but way too technical for me. I going to get a Wifi only device which will live off the same network, but will not be managed by Zeroshell. The disconnects are a bit frustrating.

Apart from that, the tool is great.
