Is anyone using the driver in master mode with a good performance?
Mine is working fine most of the times for local access but when I get
into internet, the performance is quite bad.

To get through to internet (eth0) I use iptables maquerade:

Forward is enabled setting a 1 in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
I connect to the AP with a Windows XP laptop.

Maybe that's simply the limitation brought into the scene by your

most internet connections have.
