Well, I have a 15 km link and it gives duplicate packets. It's not
horrible enough to be noticeable for usual Internet use
(browsing/download), but will heart VoIP and other real-time services. 

FYI, Cisco 350 series cards will stop working altogether when used for 
15km+ links. They have some kind of limit in the firmware.

I wish there was a way to configure DIFS/CIFS periods.
