Have read a lot of this sort of thing on different lists lately. There seems
to be some issues with mixed 802.11b and 802.11g wireless set-ups. I have
read that if the entire set-up is 'g' type then all is well, and if
everything is 'b' all is well, only when there is a mixture of b and g cards
and stations, etc... Does there seem to be issues?

Maybe this is what is happening to you as well?

No solutions or work arounds as yet (other than going completely 'g'
compatible) but hope this helps anyway.
