OK, I fixed the connlimit extension. Please:

  - download recent version of patch-o-matic-ng

  - remove "patchlets/connlimit" directory from extracted pom-ng

  - run "./runme --download"

  - patch & recompile your kernel, as always

  - tell me if it works (or not).

GPRS/EDGE is not so bad, especially if you don't have anything better. ;)

Connlimit goes to my external pom-ng repository.
