If your network is not stable, you will be facing database corruption. A server database would be a better solution than using VFP inbuild database. But it would also entail quite a bit of rewriting.
Your speed problem will require an analysis of what exactly is slowing down the system and changing code there to speed things up

I am working on ERP presently, my company is devided in 7 different units which are located in range of 15 to 20KMS and connected with wireless lan (11 MBPS) where some times network work very slow as well as break the link for few seconds. During a table is updating if network breaks a link the DBF become corrupt. I am facing the problem frequently. Is there any solution available to increase the speed of wireless connectivity. How can I prevent my DBFs from corruption.

We have drastical speed problem in wireless network, we would like to convert our ERP to WEB application, how can it is possible without changing VFP code. Is there any utility available to convert VFP application to WEB appliation automatically? or Is there any solution for increasing wireless speed or changing hardware?

Since the slow-down you are experiencing is when running wirelessly I am not convinced that converting to a Web-based app would improve things because this tends to suggest you are moving a lot of data about and that will be just as slow over the internet!
