Odd behavior across a wireless router

Hello All,

I have a Linux box with 2.4.18, HostAP 05-19-02 and two Linksys WMP11 cards. Clients connecting to the cards are shown with good statistics, signal of 20 and rate of 110 according to /proc/net/prism2/wlan#/MAC and the statitics remain consistent. Pings to and from the hosts work properly with a loss rate of about 5% give or take a bit. However, anything that requires quite a bit of data transfer, FTP sessions, e-mail with attachments, will stop working, even when pings and signal strength stay the same.

Has anyone else seen this kind of behavior and, better yet, found a fix for the problem?

The cards are new as of about two weeks ago, no firmware updates have been applied.
