[erlang-questions] erlang nodes over a wifi (50% quality) network

Hi all,

I'm trying to connect several erlang nodes over a wifi network.  The
same application works perfectly over Ethernet but when I go wireless,
approximately every 5 minutes I get a noconnection error in some of
the nodes (nodes reconnect by themselves after a period of time that
goes from 5 secs to 1min).

I'm setting the following kernel parameters in the sys.config:

[{kernel, [{sync_nodes_mandatory, []},
          {sync_nodes_optional, ['sun@REDACTED']},
          {sync_nodes_timeout, 5000}]},

Some applications register globally.  Nodes communicate with each
other issuing rpc calls.

Are there any recommendations you could point out in order to connect
several erlang nodes over a medium quality wifi network? (quality is
in average 50%).  The network quality is not perfect but seems good
enough for other applications (ssh, http...).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
