	11mbit/half duplex 802.11b.. I've seen speeds at around
600KBytes/sec (4.6mbit/sec) which is about the best you can do - and isn't
bad by any means. As I explained below, the problem is with FBSD 5.X (all
the way to CURRENT), where I'm seeing the speeds drop from what they were
in 4.x to around 180KBytes/sec (or 1.4mbit/sec).
