I suspect it’s the wireless connection, id start there first before a
software overhaul. I use windows, but I have tried Linux, I just have major
issues with my duel port TNC's. enough that I'm not banging my head on the
wall trying to make work.
I'll save the head vs. wall for things my 19 year old son does.

This is a Linux node, good point on missing packets.

I'm not sure if this is a problem that will correct itself or its going 
to take a wired connection and hopefully not a clean install.
