* What is the speed of your wireless network? Check with iwconfig.
* How much traffic do you see? A good tool is iptraf. Maybe do a wget of a 
large file and check the speed
* Are you the only person using the access point?
* What are the mount parameters that you are using? I suggest nolock and noac.
