I'm having a problem transferring files from my wired desktop PC (running Windows XP SP2) to my Powerbook (running OS X 10.4.3) using wireless. They're both connected to a Linksys WRT54G v3.0 running 4.20.7.
I connect directly to the laptop from Windows and start copying a file, and for a while it transfers at a reasonable speed (about 24Mbps), but then randomly it will just plummet to about 0.5Mbps. It will only transfer at this reduced speed until I close off the connection and re-connect to the laptop. Then I can repeat the same process.
This happens randomly, but consistently. Sometimes it will happen about 40MB into the transfer, sometimes about 200MB, but it always happens. The laptop is literally 1 foot from the AP, so connection quality isn't the issue. Yes, I'm fully aware that I can use wired when it's that close, but that's besides the point.
The router is running WEP and in G-Only mode, with Frame Burst enabled. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
