I've seen the same thing with a PrismII card running in hostAP mode (not
using hostap code). I'm fairly sure that this is related to the card
firmware, as it appears that broadcast and multicast traffic are delayed
until the next beacon frame. The AP firmware has the ability to overcome
this limitation but the standard Station firmware does not.
If you try decreasing the period between frames, does the throughput
Hope this helps
