Oooer, the crashing doesn't sound good.

Oooer... Rather bad!

Is that really some problem drivers? Really after all these years?

Or is it running uncased and getting licked by hungry dogs and fur?
Or is there low voltage to it for whatever is plugged in?
Or is the memorycard failing?...

I may well be experimenting with such a device soon myself for use as a 
print server to 'network attach' an old printer.

Good luck!
