Sorry, please allow me to qualify that rant:

1. Wireless disassociations. Several per week per workstation.

2. Dropped established TCP sessions. Like to leave an SSH session open and
expect it to work the next day? Guess again.

3. Lock ups with high numbers of TCP or UDP sessions, such as with bittorrent?

Modem mode and using my own OpenWRT-based router resolves all that.
