that some users are seeing much slower response times on their N800 and N810s than others.

I am using an N800 that, based on others' report is slower to respond than it ought to be.  Here are the details:

Orbiter Setup
 * Used (ebay) Nokia N800 Orbiter
 * OS (settings=>control panel=>about product):
    * maemo Linux based OS2008
    * version 2.2007.51-3
 * Connection (settings=>control panel=>connectivity=>connections=>edit connection)
    * Security Method: WPA pre-shared key
    * Advanced=>Other=>WLAN transmission power: 100mW
    * Advanced=>Other=>Power saving: On (maximum)
 * Connectivity (settings=>control panel=>connectivity):
    * Idle times=>WLAN idle time: unlimited
 * Orbiter Setup: I followed the instructions here http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Nokia_N800#Installation_under_OS2008_and_OS2007

Network
 * on INTERNAL network
 * wireless via WRT54GL running OpenWRT/X-WRT
   * WLAN interface in bridge mode
   * Static IP (192.168.80.30)
   * DHCP disabled: (core does DHCP)
 * WRT54GL connected to core via D-Link 10/100/1000 switch
 * Encryption Type: WPA+WPA2 (PSK)

Performance
 * "Start Orbiter" to UI1: 21 seconds
 * Home to Video: ~3 seconds
 * Jump to Letter in Video: 2 seconds for text update, 5 seconds for coverart update
 * Up/Down Arrow: 1.5 seconds for coverart update, 3 seconds for text update
 * Select Video to Coverart/Play/Close screen: 2 seconds
 * close Coverart/Play/Close screen (back to library): 2 to 5 seconds
 * once in a while, the orbiter will take about 10 seconds to react to any input

Is this performance normal?

I'll keep the same format for consistency:

Orbiter Setup
 * Used (ebay) Nokia N800 Orbiter (same here)
 * OS (settings=>control panel=>about product):
    * maemo Linux based OS2008
    * version 2.2007.43-7 (mine is an older ver)
 * Connection (settings=>control panel=>connectivity=>connections=>edit connection)
    * Security Method: None
    * Advanced=>Other=>WLAN transmission power: 100mW (same here)
    * Advanced=>Other=>Power saving: On (maximum) (same here)
 * Connectivity (settings=>control panel=>connectivity):
    * Idle times=>WLAN idle time: unlimited (same here)
 * Orbiter Setup: I followed the wiki instructions and installed the 'Diablo' version of orbiter.

Network
 * on INTERNAL network
 * wireless via WRT350N running DD-WRT v24-sp1 (mega)
   * WLAN interface in access point mode (CH11)
   * Static IP (192.168.80.128)
   * DHCP disabled: (core does DHCP)
 * WRT350N connected to core via 2x D-Link Green series 10/100/1000 switches (DGS-1008D)
 * Encryption Type: None

Performance
 * "Start Orbiter" to UI1: 8-9 seconds
 * Home to Video: ~3 seconds
 * Jump to Letter in Video: 1 seconds for text update, ~3 seconds for coverart update
 * Up/Down Arrow: 1 seconds for coverart update, ~2 seconds for text update
 * Select Video to Coverart/Play/Close screen: 2-3 seconds
 * close Coverart/Play/Close screen (back to library): 1-2 seconds
 * once in a while, the orbiter will take about 10 seconds to react to any input (I get this too occasionally)

My Nokia N800 is typically faster to respond than my WebDT366 in the same room.
I also have 2.4Ghz bluetooth controllers and headsets for my PS3 and Wii and my cordless phones are all 2.4Ghz and all in the room co-existing and operating toegher (except for the ps3 and wii controllers, they do not operate at the same time).

My N800 response times increase if my wireless signal degrades at all (ie, I go into the back yard).

There are also two other wireless networks in houses near me on CH1 & CH6.
