ral0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 2290
        ether 00:0e:2e:ec:e1:3d
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet OFDM/54Mbps mode 11g <hostap>
        status: associated

        roam:rate11g 5 protmode CTS dtimperiod 1

Unfortunately there is not such information in ral(4), ifconfig(8) or
wlan(4). The issue still exist. I set the media to OFDM/54Mbps and can do
only 180 KBps. Very bad.
Any ideas?
