Re: half duplex

ehm, thank you all very much, I will try to connect my laptop directly with the modem and see if there is any difference.

Does half duplex make the network traffic slower?

That's the point. A hub can only give you a half duplex connection as opposed to a switch. For an explanation see [1]. But it should not matter in your setup cause the wireless bridge will be the bottleneck anyway.
