Interestingly, I am not able to duplicate the pegged CPU on b5+ with my
4801. It gets kind of high (40ish % during 3mbit down and ~5kbit up)
but it's not at 100% the way others have described.
Also, after having moved back to b6 for a while, I went to b7 again and
mine is no longer locking up. I can't think of any logical reasons for
