I've never had that problem with an Orinoco Silver and an SMC access
point, so that's probably specific to the card or access point. Mine
is just slow.  OTOH, it's usable most of the time... if I want to
shuttle gigs around or edit pictures over NFS, I plug in to
100baseT.  So I'd say it's good to have both.

I bought some powdered water, but I don't know what to add to it.
