Personal experience with wpa2... while I don't discard it was a specific
problem/incompatibility with the wireless card chipset in use and the AP,
heck, should you add a security layer you are adding more traffic (data)
that need to be proccessed (encoded/decoded) by both, the host AP and
Besides, if you experience additional problems with coberture (long
distance between the AP and the client) or interferences (saturated
channel spectrum) then the "recipe" for a slow connection is served :-)
