left to its own devices my wireless connects at too low a speed. I have a 20meg internet connection and my wireless is slowing it down to like 3meg. When I reboot into windows it's fine. When I run iwconfig eth1 rate 11M or even 24M the connection is much faster and runs fine, why won't it automatically go higher? Is this the fault of the driver? I am running Broadcom's driver compiled from source. Also, how can I set it to 24M at boot?
Edit: I guess I can put iwconfig eth1 rate 24M in rc.local, but I'd still like to get auto running higher, especially as my signal should be pretty good.
