    It's not really sil24 tho. But anyways, I think we can just disable
    them altogether. It's not like they have ever worked. Just limiting
    both 3726 and 4726 to 5 ports should be fine. That said, I'm not
    quite sure this is relevant to the reported problem but it's worth a
    shot.

    Thanks.
