comment Test wireless speed?
so download speeds over a long lived tcp connection are what you really care about? That is what you should be testing then, not icmp.

comment Test wireless speed?
Unless the main use of your wireless network consists of sending icmp packets back and forth, that is probably the worst possible test you could perform.

comment Test wireless speed?
If that is what you are trying to determine then transferring data between a wired computer and a wireless computer on your lan is a perfectly acceptable test. Also, 20mbs is nothing, a piece of crap wrt54g can do 20mb

comment Netcat file transfer problem
scp may have been slow, but it most definitely had nothing to do with the encryption, and everything to do with the scp protocol being horrible inefficient. Again, netcat is buying you absolutely nothing other than being more complicated and less secure. Just use tar over ssh.
