are you using MAC spoofing on the WAN by chance? I'm not 100% sure on
this, but I know some Realtek NIC's have issues with promiscuous mode
(though I thought it was across the board and not just in 4.x) and I
believe MAC spoofing requires promiscuous mode. This is a faint
recollection of something I ran across in the past, and I could be way
off on that. Somebody please correct me if I am.
Other than that, if you aren't changing your configuration at all, I
don't see where anything else could be an issue.
