Richard, I was speaking with Beverly (I think) at Wisp Routers. She
explained to me that 1D boards had a problem with some resistors. So
when they got a recent shipment, they were replacing the resitors
on-site rather than sending the boards back to PC Engines to be repaired
(to save product turnaround time)

Perhaps you have a version of the board with faulty resistors?  If you
purchased your WRAPS from PC Engines, I'd say it is worth calling them
and asking about this.
