named as the culprit causing home routers to go into a crash and reboot 
cycle <http://apcmag.com/router_crashes_blamed_on_windows_xp_sp3.htm>. 
One router maker has released firmware updates to fix the problem, but 
has not yet revealed what is actually different about XP SP3's 
networking stack or UPnP behaviour that causes the problem. Router maker 
Billion Managing Director Raaj Menon said "as Microsoft plans to make 
Windows XP SP3 an automatic upgrade this month, the number of affected 
routers may increase significantly.""/
