Just last night mine froze up for the first time, but then I was really
trying to hammer it by downloading all 3 iso's of Fedora at the same time...
:) They started coming in fast but eventually all timed out and then could
not get to anything quickly. It acted like it was a 9600 baud modem, lol. A
reboot returned it to normal speed. Care to share a snip of your xml file
for that shaper rule Chad? :)
