[AG-TECH] RAT over wireless

I use AG over wireless quite often, with both audio and video. It works 
fine for the most part. If there are problems I would hazard a guess 
that it is a wireless network issue. Either lots of wireless traffic, 
overloaded Access Points (too many connections) and/or poor signal 
strength for the wireless (too far from an AP).
