I've changed my VDSL connection from 8/1 Mbit to 10/2 Mbit a few days
ago. Coincidentally, a few hours later, my Level One router started
behaving strangely. Namely, after a few hours of normal performance,
its log starts filling up with entries like these:

The connection works fine for a few more hours (log being filled with
such entries, and also a few regular ones), but later on the router
freezes completely.

After restarting it, the story repeats itself. Even resting offline
and off-power for 2 hours didn't change a thing. I'll try a complete
reset today, as well as a firmware re-upgrade if needed.

Any ideas as per what may be the reason? Could it be the higher speed,
or is this just a coincidence?
(The number of concurrent TCP+UDP connections is not an issue, I've
sorted this out a few years ago. )
