Heh, at least you have some connectivity - mine is still using none!
none0 at pci8:0:0: class=0x028000 card=0x135c103c chip=0x42228086 rev=0x02
vendor = 'Intel Corporation'
device = '3945ABG Intel 3945ABG Wireless LAN controller'
class = network
Driver either fails to initialise, or panic's my -CURRENT laptop :)
I'd think its highly likely that performance issues are due to
