    Just for the record I saw this at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11#Protocols
    802.11g
    Main article: IEEE 802.11g-2003

    In June 2003, a third modulation standard was ratified: 802.11g. This works in the 2.4 GHz band (like 802.11b), but uses the same OFDM based transmission scheme as 802.11a. It operates at a maximum physical layer bit rate of 54 Mbit/s exclusive of forward error correction codes, or about 22 Mbit/s average throughput.[12] 802.11g hardware is fully backward compatible with 802.11b hardware and therefore is encumbered with legacy issues that reduce throughput when compared to 802.11a by ~21%
    Notice the red text. I am wondering if this is what I am seeing.

    That is quite possible. Remember that all those speeds are theoretical maxima and real world speeds are always (substantially) lower.
