I have a similar situation, with a brand new Linksys wireless router.
Following your suggestion, this morning I updated its firmware. Still no
joy. SSH sessions get cut off frequently, although it is better if I'm
closer to the router. Differences even show up in a ping or tracert
command, with times about 10 times higher, or more, for the wireless
connection that for a wired connection. I may get brave and call their
tech support.
