The infamous Stuck Beacon Problem

The Stuck Beacon Problem (SBP) is an intermittant but severe problem for some users. It has been around for a while, but has yet to be resolved. Please help collect and report data on this bug be suffixing your experience to this page. Since no one yet knows the basis for the problem, the meaures to report here will be refined over time. Please read on for more hints.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that the SBP occurs to varying degrees, and only the most severe are reported as 'Stuck Beacon'. One of the measures that can indicate the problem is an acceleration in the card's hardware interrupt rate.
