Packet loss occurs when the XO is performing wireless scans. This seems to happen automatically in the background but can also be replicated manually.
Start a fast ping
sudo ping -i 0.1 GATEWAY_IP
sudo iwlist eth0 scan
You will notice a drop of somewhere between 4-8 ICMP packets and the antennae light on the XO will flash.
While not normally noticable this causes problems for applications like VideoChat.
