Hi guys...may be one of you can help me...

I connected an ESP8266 (wifi-serial) to a duemilenove...pins 2 and 4..used software serial (by the way, found documentation is incorrect)... 

things should go: use monitor to send and recieve comand and data to software serial attached to 8266..

thing work smooth for a while...after a couple of minutes, serial monitor starts to "get crazy", computer say usb port is not recognized...port hangs out, serial monitor is not usefull anymore... however, WIFI IS NOT DISCONNECTED AT ANY MOMENT! it keeps tied to the network for hours...you can ping it all night long....but serial monitor never comes back....
