Wireless TCP aborts

Using ssh and rsync to copy a lot of stuff from my
old desktop to my new laptop. The old desktop is using
a wired connection to an (admittedly crappy) D-Link router,
the new one is using an Atheros wireless connection to the
same router. I periodically see the transfer fail with
the following messages on the wireless side:
Corrupted MAC on input.
Disconnecting: Packet corrupt
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed ... [receiver]
and then the rsync session is dead.
It seems odd that a single corrupt packet would terminate
the TCP connection.
