I do not want to build an image from scratch with recompiled binaries to 
fight a threat that will fade in a week or two...  A little tough there.

Seems to be random source and destination ports in the 4-5 digit range. 
  So far it has been, notice it, and block the IP.  Add user to static 
DHCP in a blocked block of addresses.  Hope they call.  Do it again when 
they change WiFi cards.  Remember that this is in a hotel, and I support 
about 40 of them.  I have done 4 hotels with this problem this week, and 
2 of them twice.  It is fully manual, always a crises, and a PITA!

There is no way to limit connections with the traffic shaper is there?


PS:  I am going to bed now after fixing another one.  It is 1:47am.
