Acer Veriton L460 slow INTERNET wireless connection

I am trying to connect a new Acer Veriton L460 with builtin wireless to an existing network. At the customer site it "falls off" the network constantly - says  the connection is good but poor or no connectivity - usually cannot even ping the router after about 15 seconds. In my home office it connects and stays connected. However, downloads from the internet are exceptionally slow and usually fail. I can access normal HTML pages without problems. If I download files to another computer, transferring them to this computer is painless and fast.
XP Professional with all updates.. I've re-installed the NIC driver and tried 3 routers at the site.

Does the Acer have any kind of connection management software?...I have had similar problems with IBM/Lenovo laptops with their 'access connections' software. If it's not already, make sure Windows is managing the connection.

Found the problem. The unit was FUBAR. Returned it for DOA exchange and the new one works perfectly.
