Strange. You seem to have posted a near-identical message on April
4th, 2007. It looks like there were replies then, but no follow-ups
from yourself, then you posted the above 10 days later.
I'm pretty sure I've seen posts on here in which people have stated
they're using 802.11g speeds successfully for both SD and a single HD
stream, but I wouldn't like to have to rely on it myself.
t looks like the ZD1211rw driver you're using is relatively new and
IMO 9 months is relatively immature for a wireless driver. I actually
have an AG-225H here, myself - I haven't tested it under Linux, but
am pleased to find some OSS drivers supported.
If you can I'd try a PCI or Cardbus wireless card & see if that makes
any difference - the rt2500 & prism54 drivers are both very good now
(I sell cards based on both of these - contact me off-list if you're
interested) and madwifi seems so, too.
