I have two laptops. One is attached to a robot with a Kinect, Another one is workstation, running rviz, rostopic, etc Both is connected with wifi (adhoc or with router)

My problem is at laptop robot, Kinect+freenect runs fine, running rostopic hz gives 30Hz rate,

At the workstation camera feed is very slow. 3Hz or lower.

Is there any way to improve the rate? Compared to other nodes at robot, they are fast, e.g. /tf gives 50Hz
