I use drakx-net as well, but it seems different hardware.
I don't know if this will help any, but when I download DVDs using a
wireless hotspot, moving my portable only 20 cm can make a big
difference in whether I get a reliable connexion, and even 10 cm can
make a big difference in download speed. The orientaion of my portable
makes a difference as well.
(I use aria2 which gives me feedback once a minute.)
The strength of the signals vary on different days as well.
