I see the same kind of raw WLAN performance as Stuart
BUT still suffer occasional drop outs when playing uncompressed PCM (AIFF)
when running SlimServer on a Dual 1.25GHz G4 2GB MAC
(with no user applications running and with no other devices connected to
the WLAN).

I can't find a good explanation for this ...
