Toshiba Satellite M30 + Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter (as

threshold (2347) and DTIM Interval (1) and beacon interval (100).....
changing those values could help to improve performance?

Actually while writing this post, I have a background command window pinging
continuosly the AP and getting answers in about 1/4ms; randomly some

Should I care?
