Yes I have been using the "iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M" work around for
quite a while and it works. However the speeds usually only improve to
approximately 100kB/s (still much less than the 600+ kB/s I've seen
with other OSes).
I'm not familiar with methods for debugging Linux drivers so it will
take some time before I can get any useful info.
