Packet loss at the tailing end


I am trying to add convolution encoding and decoding to the benchmark
scripts available in gnuradio and test using two N210s. A problem I have
found is that the tailing packets for example last 10 packets out of a
burst of 50 packets are not being received i.e. are not even passing the
access_code_correlator block (decoding happens after the correlation
successes with detection of start of the encoded packet) Could this be
to the high processing requirement for the decoding algorithm?

When I remove the convolution codes, i…e use the provided benchmark
scripts I don’t find any such problems at all. What could be some of the
possible reasons that a set of packets do not make it to the end of flow
