    40 users is probably a lot for these 2 to handle along with handling the wds + whatever encryption you have running. You can try forcing a lower speed and this might lower the load on the 2.

    you might want to consider a couple more devices and use cables rather than WDS... you might also want to consider G, with WPA and a little faster... if you have b clients your out of luck and have to stick with WPA...

    bottom line: 40 clients is a lot for a commercial Wifi Access point, imagine how hard you to little broadcom devices have to work...
