Hi List,
I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG adapter using the wpi0 driver
connecting to an access point using the 802.11g mode.
# ifconfig wpi0 mode 11g
# ifconfig wpi0
media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect mode 11g (OFDM/6Mbps)

Can anyone explain why I see OFDM/6Mbps instead of OFDM/54Mbps (or at
least 19Mbps if you mean the actual throughput?)
