HostAP and Bridging performance

I'm looking for some pointers here. I have a system running RH8
operating as a Host based AP.
I have remote systems that can connect and Authenticate without any
problems, however when I enable bridging on the system the performance
of the network goes through the floor.
I'm relatively new to Linux and I guess that this issue is "operator
error", but I can't figure out what is the problem.
The performance that I'm seeing is as follows:
Without bridging enabled I can get aound 650Kbytes /sec to the system
When I enable bridging I get around 100Kbytes/sec!
Does anyone have any pointers on where I can start looking to fix this?
Thanks in advance
