Actually, I run 1 xbox on my wired network and one on the WRT54G 
bridge.  The xbox on the other side of the wireless link definately has 
more lag than either my wired xbox or my wireless laptop.  It could be a 
signal strengh issue, but it runs well enough that I don't bother 
tracking down the slowdown.
