Sounds like a (yet another) WLAN Power Save Problem to me.

Unfortunately that doesn't tell much. I have understood that most of
Windows laptops don't support WLAN Power Save Mode, so testing an AP
with a Windows laptop doesn't tell much.

WM is Windows Mobile, right? I have never tried a Windows Mobile
device, I'm not aware of they use WLAN PSM or not.

Try disabling WLAN PSM from N800 by setting BOTH wlan_sleep_timeout
and inactive_wlan_sleep_timeout. Google is your friend.

But please note that this will kill your battery life.
