Yet another data point: I'm using m0n0 1.3b5 on a net4801 and  
experience the crashes. No Captive Portal, but I do use shaping,  
vlans, wifi. No NAT at all. If I use something like BitTorrent the box  
is likely to crash anything between minutes and hours after the  
connections start pouring in. This is on 8M/832K ADSL.
