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 24M or even
48M 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. Would adding
iwconfig eth1 rate 24M to rc.local be the right way to force it at boot?
Output from iwconfig when rate=auto:
