Can anyone with this problem confirm (or disprove) that this does not
happen with 1.2b2? Just because somebody said their problems with a
WRAP board and 1.2b3 went away after going back to 1.2b2 (which I
can't find an explanation for).

FWIW, I set up a Linux 2.6.9 based iptables firewall with rp-pppoe on
a net4801 a few weeks ago. Worked fine during testing, but as soon as
I made it productive, it locked up completely every 12 hours or so.
Getting a Senao miniPCI wireless card to work reliably at full speed
without locking up using the latest hostap driver wasn't possible
either (even tried LEAF to make sure it's not just my Linux setup).
So all is not well there either...

OTOH, I've been running 1.2b3 on two net4501s ever since it was
released and have not had a single lockup so far.
