I am getting the above message on one of my mining rigs, with a lot of disconnects to the mining pool as well (see below).

I've read on other posts that this could be an availability issue with the pool's servers so I've tried both BTCGuild and BitClockers pool, with the same results.  The strange thing is that I have another rig pointing at BTCGuild and it seems to be running just fine. 

Any ideas?

According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

I'm getting the exact the same problem as you, it just that one card that disconnects and drop to 0 mhash/s, i'm hoping the new phoenix miner have a auto restart option.

Turns out my problem is with the network connection.  I have my rigs running in the garage connected to my home network through a WiFi bridge I set up in there.  It looks like the signal strength in the garage isn't that great and there's a lot of network errors.
