[pulseaudio-discuss] Pulseaudio over WLAN stuttering

I am recently trying to use PA over the network and am encountering a
major problem: The sound is stuttering a lot and is full if tiny lags
(it sometimes appears as if the song is played back with a lower speed).
After a bit of investigation (, ) it seems to be related to my
WLAN. It's a private b/g-type WLAN so bandwidth should be sufficient.
And indeed connecting the server (a laptop running debian wheezy) via
wire improves the situation a bit. But it's still not acceptable. I
cannot connect the client via wire as it's a tablet PC (HP Touchpad with
debian wheezy chroot).
Do you have any hints why PA performs so bad on WLAN? And is there
anything I can do about it? I did make sure it's not a "out of CPU power
problem" on the client or server. I also tried realtime scheduling
(although this is not a -rt linux kernel). Perhaps I can adjust some
buffer sizes? I'm perfectly willing to give up latency if it makes the
stuttering go away.
Thank you a lot in advance!
