WinExplorer slowdown / crash on Wifi transfers

    I have a partially working WiFi network, able to move files from main system
    to subordinate system. Strange behaviour, though. Transfers start out
    normally with the message box with animated document icon, progress bar and
    files being moved. Then the animation stops, the progress bar and time
    remaining fields are not updated and the file names do not change. Task
    Manager shows network activity continuing. The Explorer main panes are not
    updated as normal. Sometimes the transfers complete and Explorer redraws its
    panes - very slowly. Eventually, though, the network traffic ceases.
    Explorer becomes a 'not responding' application that must be terminated.
    Restart of explorer claims the network connection is nonexistent. Only way
    to clear it is to cycle power on the Wifi router (ASDL).

    Anyone seen this before or understands what causes the problem?
