I deployed a couple net5501's intially with 1.2x but I've since
upgraded them to 1.3b. They are on medium-sized networks; 50-75
concurrent users. It was mostly proper VLAN support for the net5501
and ability to filter incoming traffic on IPSEC VPN's that prompted me
to upgrade. I've had no problems running 1.3b9 and 1.3b11 in
production at numerous sites, mostly on Alix 2c3's and the net5501's.
