The linksys is WRT54G total crap. We don't use them. We have found that
cheaper AP's do much better. We have good luck w/ random Taiwanese
brands like Compex, Lantech, and AZTech. They have Atheros or RealTek

I saw it drop as well when I changed out of the Network View, but it
still remained fairly high w/ 200 very active users, too high to keep me
from launching EToys

I think that is because large deployments like Uruguay aren't using the
XS and others like Mongolia don't have the technical expertise to
monitor such things.

That leaves new "large" deployments like Paraguay and Nepal in an
unenviable position as pioneers.
