slow wireless connection with wrt54GS-DE

    Hi All!

    I use the linksys wrt54GS-DE to connect a DVB-C receiver with my computer where a WMP54GS-DE is installed. The receiver is connected with normal cable to port 1 of the router and the PC uses the wireless connection.
    The problem is that I can´t stream from the PC to the receiver - but all works fine if I also connect the PC via cable. For streaming to the PC it interrupts after some minutes for less than a second and works on....(if connected wireless).
    I use Slackware 10 with kernel and installed the PCI-Card via ndiswrapper.
    ifconfig and iwconfig say that:

    root@spunik:~# ifconfig wlan0
    wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0F:66:6D:10:5E
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

    I tried to disable encryption and changing the channel. And the ping is between 1 and 3 ms...
    Has anybody an idea what is going wrong in my configuration????


    edit> The connection from the receiver to the router is 10Mbit/s and Halfduplex. So there shouldn´t be a problem with the general speed of a wireless connection......
