That may be your problem :) Try move further away, i know that
being to close to the AP can cause issues too, with any card,
although 4m sounds fine. It could also be that the WPI drivers
are just limited as they dont work at faster speeds yet. What
version of FreeBSD are you running, and what WPI drivers?
