vb6 accessing data from MS Access over the network becomes prohibitively slow

I have a VB-MS Access application. If I split the Access DB and run VB application from a remote machine to access data from master access db over wireless network it becomes damn slow. I am using jet connection and running queries from inside vb. recordsets are ADO. any suggestion to improve performance ??

I understand that wireless is very slow because of design, if you have much traffic. Have you tried the same setup wired for a compairison?

DB is 97MB. I did not try the same with wired set up. Wireless network has almost null traffic. Compacting the database periodically wont work out for my customer. I read on microsoft website that there is'nt a way to have good performance with access DB if you wanna run it in multi user environment. Thanks for you comment guys.
