 On my phone a simple test is to just try to get packets out over wifi.
 Since the high packetloss makes getting a DHCP conversation trough very
 hard i recommend setting a static ip.

 > For example, just pinging something on local network at one packet a
 second shows high packetloss?  Or we need to do bulk transfer?

 Set the AP as an open system and try to ping it.  Also try to ping the FR
 from another computer on the same wired network as the AP. The packetloss
 is very high, sometimes 100%.

 The thing that strikes me as rather strange is this output from ifconfig
 after trying to unsuccessfully ping my AP:

 eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:12:CF:8E:FC:12
           inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
           inet6 addr: fe80::212:cfff:fe8e:fc12/64 Scope:Link
           UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
           RX packets:3103 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
           TX packets:758 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

           RX bytes:1430550 (1.3 MiB)  TX bytes:32423 (31.6 KiB)

 The packets are registered but somewhere sent to the bitbucket.
