Yes, that is also my experience.  I am in touch with IT dept.

Bandwidth is limited in the area where i do testing, the APs are not
yet upgraded to 1 Gb (IIRC but 100mb should have been enough for 2
channels, anyways) but my additional issue is WiFi signal strength.  I
loose a lot of signal when it drops below 70%.  And as I said before,
I do not mind dropped packets as long ans there is more sound than
silence.  Perhaps I am looking for something that is impossible to
achieve but that's research, right? :)

I will be trying out netjack and ninjam and whatnot today and tomorrow
so hopefully I will have some clearer reports.

Thank you all for you input.  I'll be back ;)
