My web browsers were timing out badly.  In some cases, the browser
would explicitly say "Connection timed out". But most of the time, the
browser tab would show that spinny thing as if the page was loading.
The spinny thing would be around for a long time (30 seconds, or so),
then would disappear, and the page would not be loaded.  I've had GMail
refuse to send my messages, complaining about connectivity problems.
And many other symptoms.

The reason I asked the version question was because I wanted to know
when to re-enable the 5500MHz frequency on my router (see previous
messages). Sounds like I'll have to wait until 2.7 is out.

Many thanks,
