    Another interesting thing happens to the WRVS4400N. Every once in a while it will decide to reboot. This seems to be no big deal. It happens when the router sends a request for a time update to a time server and receives a response time that is different from the interior clock by enough that the WRVS4400N needs to apply an internal update to its clock. The update to the internal clock is through a reboot. The internal clock on the WRVS4400N will drift after a day or two enough to justify the update. The need for a reboot seems to be involved with the WRVS4400N update of certain IPSec paramaters that are time sensitive. In general, this seems to be normal and would probably happen less in units that have an internal clock with less drift. Another recommendation for people using IPSec is to be sensitive about clocks. Try to have all of your devices (routers and PCs) sync to the same network time (i.e. ___.nist.gov).
