Cisco 1121G Wirless Access point speed issue.

Hi,
I have a Cisco 1121G Wireless access point with a Cisco ASA5505 firewall. When I plug a PC into the firewall directly, I do a speed test from my cable modem and get 29-30mbits/sec. When I connect with my wireless G card in my laptop to the AP, I can only seem to get around 8-8.1mbit/sec. I have gone through all the settings on the AP, and set it up to ONLY allow G connections. This increased my speed from about 7.9mbit/sec to the 8.1 I am getting now. My other laptop has a Cisco G card and the results are about the same. Does anyone know of any restrictions on the Cisco 1121G AP's, or has anyone experienced the same issue? Also, I have tried the AP in Powered and PoE setups with the same results.
Any ideas?

Check these things:
1) Your speed and duplex settings for the Ethernet connection from the AP to the Firewall.  Make sure they are set to 100 Mbps Full Duplex (hard coded).  If you have a switch in between, check that as well.
2) On your AP, try a different channel for the wireless.  You may be experiencing interference, especially if you live in a densely populated area.

Got those down...but I still can't seem to get more than 7.5-8mbits. It is almost like the AP is holding back somehow. I have even tried resetting to factory default as well. I am not using WEP, just mac filtering and no broadcasting. Any other thoughts?

My only other idea would be to upgrade the AP firmware to the latest rev.  Sorry...
