100% signal strength but very poor ping times

    Hi Gurus

    I have a strange(for me at least) problem, I have a WRT54G v3.1 Router, and if I place the router and my pc just next to each other, the signal strength is 100%, but when I try to ping the router, I get ping times between 270ms and up to 2100ms!!

    I have tried switching channel, but with no luck

    When connecting with normal cable everything works fine(ping 5-10ms)

    Does anybody have any suggestions?

    Thx in advance:)

    What happens if you turn off all the encryption?
