7500 isn't very many packets.
Try ping -f. (f for flood, need to be root)
It takes me 13 seconds to get to 7500 packets.
If that doesn't find a problem, try longer packets.
In case you don't have a man page handy...
-c xxx (c for count, stops after xxx packets)
-s xxx (s for size, sends packets of xxx bytes)
-f puts an "interesting" load on things. You might try XO to XO rather than
going through the AP and/or loading the router. (but the lights on the AP
and/or router might be helpful) Or XO to PC rather than router...
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
