You could try connecting to a warmer network, or maybe use a USB hand warmer to keep it thawed. 

Joking aside, I used a USB to ethernet adaptor to the one we have as a test unit to improve network reliability, It never really gave me a problem. (We never deployed any chrome bits, but have over 100 chromeboxes.) 

Is it freezing while you are using a keyboard to set the wireless up, or once you are connected and playing a presentation?
Hi Alex

I haven't seen that before, maybe try recovery using a chrome OS recovery disk? I have solved some finicky behavior that way.

Hello, knowing you are using Chromebits (so do I), just curious, which other hardware players are you using instead? Since no longer supported, I am looking for options besides NUCs. Thanks. And by the way, I haven`t experienced that "freezing" issue, but for some others, I made a hard reset or using a ChromeOsRecovery as mentioned.
Regards
