I have the same kind of problem at home. I can't copy big files over
ssh unless I limit the rate ( ssh -l 8000 ... )
After reading your mail, I make some quick tests ( see below).

Results in short :
- netcat always work.
- ssh stalls, nearly immediately.

I thought fault cames from a kernel update or my wifi card update.
Apparently, I was wrong for the hardware.

Here are the test I just made : 

network:
SG ----- eth_100_Mbps ----- ISV_BOX )))   wifi_~1.5Mb   ((( HOUBA

host HOUBA:

HOUBA command for tests :
netcat -l -p 2000 | pv > /dev/null

TEST1 - OK : ~5min
fredo@sg:~/remote_wake$ cat /dev/null | netcat houba 2000

TEST2 - OK : ~5min
fredo@sg:~/remote_wake$ cat /dev/sda | netcat houba 2000

TEST3 - OK :
fredo@sg:~/remote_wake$
cat /media/big/home/fredo/cdanslair/cdanslair_20091125.wmv | netcat -q
