Thanks, it could be I should return this machine and get another then. 
Do you use it for the sorts of things I mentioned? Here general use is 
fine. Things like email and using the web do not cause a problem, nor 
even streaming audio which works the wifi continuously but only at a 
rate of a few packets a second.

OTOH, streaming 300kbit/s mpeg4 video with 48bkit/s mp3 audio causes the 
media player to freeze after 10 mins or so and then the m/c reboots.

Or fetching a 1.5 Gig file with:
$ wget -O /dev/null http://local-server/gigs
That ran for nearly 18 mins, at around 700kbytes/s, after which the wifi 
went dead, the m/c was warm though it didn't crash.
