    Hi, I would appreciate any suggestions on a problem I'm having. I have a USR access point/router (USR8022) and a desktop and a notebook, both with wireless cards, hooked up to it. The desktop has a D-Link 802.11b card and the notebook has a USR 22 Mbps (802.11b) card. I can access the shares/printers on each computer...I can even open really small text files. But If I try to open a slightly larger file (300 KB) it cranks for a while and gives me an error. If I plug either computer directly into the lan port on my router (through the ethernet card on the computer) and leave the other computer wireless, it works fine. It seems to be something weird about the 2 different wireless cards communicating or something. Any suggestions?
