WDS slows network down


I have a BT Voyager 2100 connected to ADSL 1Mb connection. I also have an Apple Airport Base express base station connected to my stereo and my PS2, which also acts as a WDS repeater. I also have a desktop and laptop that connect to the network wirelessly. The funny thing is, before I had turned WDS on I was getting download speeds of

950-1000kbps via the ADSL connection, but having turned on the WDS I get speeds of 180-220kbps (all wireless).

The really weird thing I don't understand is that the slow download speed persists even when I'm connected wirelessly to the BTVoyager.

Is this right? Should WDS confuse things to this degree? I have both devices running on the same channel, but they have different SSIDs.

Thanks everyone!

802.11 repeaters cut speed in half, but that should still be more than fast enough for your full ADSL speed -- perhaps you've got some sort of interference.
