On consumer level garbage, yes. That's why when I setup wireless in my home,
I used an Avaya AP-3 business level AP w/Enterasys cards. Absolutely
flawless. 11Mb connections no matter where you go. Rock solid stability.
Been rebooted once in 4 months I think. $54 on ebay, had to install a jack
in the side of the AP to take a wall wart instead of the proprietary 5V
My buffalotech wireless g bridges (interconnect shop and home) seem to be
good hardware too, based on the Broadcom chipset.
