I don't remember seeing that in the output. I'll put the Linksys back
in the FBSD box and look for it. Does it have another name? I can't
find it on the ifconfig man page.

On the XP box, the Linksys utility says that the transmit rate is 12
Mbps and the receive rate is 5.5 Mbps.

When I move the Linksys NIC to the FBSD box, I get:
$ ifconfig ral0 list scan
SSID            BSSID              CHAN RATE   S:N     INT CAPS
livingroom      00:13:10:b9:e7:d6    6   54M -93:-95  100 E

I think the "54M" is what you're asking for? I looked in man ifconfig
and couldn't find TX or RX so I'm guessing that you're asking about
the rate at which data is passed.

Thanks for your help.
