I made the mistake of installing htop and now even after uninstalling the htop 
package, still have the htop display :-(

I've moved on to the turris omni, hich is supposed to be pretty good 
performance. Download is still on the slow side, but I'm now throttling it with 
cake to around 300M, but I'm still getting horrible upload performance (10M-15M 
instead of 35M), processing power doesn't explain the upload issue.
