Question: Inconsistent Ping Times with MacBook Pro

I have a MacBook Pro 2.2 15" (Santa Rosa), and I also have a PowerBook G4 1.5ghz. I have them both on my desk sitting next to each other.

Both of them are pinging my wireless router (a Linksys WRT300N). The PowerBook gets consistent ping times of around 4-5 milliseconds, sometimes a bit higher, up to 20 or so.

The MacBook Pro gets ping times ranging from 5ms to about 1200ms, in regular patterns. About every 6th ping is over a second (sometimes as high as over 2 seconds). It's absolutely regular, and only happens on the MacBook Pro, not on the PowerBook.

This happens with different routers as well, so it seems to be a problem with the Mac. Sound like a hardware problem? Anyone else have a problem like this?

MacBook Pro 2.2ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
