airport on tibook: surfing vs. ssh/scp

i've been trying to get the airport card on my g4 tibook to work with a
linksys wap11. this tibook dual boots with OS X and the card works fine
with that wap under OS X.

on debian (sid) the connection is made between the card and wap and i'm
able to ssh/scp/ping etc, but i can't browse with either galeon or lynx.

for example:

	serge@silver:~$ ping www.google.com
	PING www.google.com ( 56 data bytes
	64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=53 time=123.9 ms
	64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=53 time=96.0 ms
	64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=53 time=99.6 ms
	64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=53 time=100.3 ms

	--- www.google.com ping statistics ---
	4 packets transmitted, 4 packets received, 0% packet loss
	round-trip min/avg/max = 96.0/104.9/123.9 ms
	serge@silver:~$ lynx www.google.com

	Looking up www.google.com first
	Looking up www.google.com

	Sending HTTP request.
	HTTP request sent; waiting for response.
	Alert!: Unexpected network read error; connection aborted.
	Can't Access `http://www.google.com/'
	Alert!: Unable to access document.

i saw a while back a thread on similar issues (slow/time-out'd browsing)
but didn't see any workarounds/fixes. i'm wondering if anyone has found
a fix for this or knows of the cause?

short of that, i've got an pcmcia wireless card on another laptop
(wcp11) that i'm thinking of setting up on the tibook with debian and
would be curious if anyone else has gone this route?
