So reliability rather than speed is what you want?
I.E. layer 1 is the most important consideration?
Personally when accessing the internet using my wireles
through my DSL modem, I fix the rate to 2Mb/s using:
sudo iwconfig eth1 rate 2Mb/s fixed
I find the autospeed negotiation problematic.
Note you probably can fix a higher rate, since I've
got 530-700mm walls in my house.
Note you can get better control over the WRT54GL (wireless power)
by installing DD-WRT. Definitely recommended:
