[clug] X over 802.11b

Although I do vaguely remember what running X over 14.4k modem feels like
(did that about 10 years ago), I'm not too impressed with X over 802.11b
which does feel *slow*.  I'm not doing anything fancy, just editing stuff in
a single xterm window with screen, a couple of shells and a tty-mode emacs.
Does something like LBX help here or is this the best that can be done?  Has
anyone compared this type of thing with the newer 802.11g cards and does it
feel any better?
