In like Flynn... My 4501's upgraded without a hitch. The "mem usage down
to 62%" statement makes me think you have 32MB on your 4511. My 4501's
are using only 35-36% of memory. I don't use Captive Portal, DHCP, or
Traffic shaping. Also I only have 10 firewall rules on my WAN interface
and 5 inbound NATS.

My suggestion would be to backup your config. Then "reset to factory" -
thus killing all the "extras" (like shaping & captive portal). Then
start killing processes...
