Hm.  I seem to have missed a few intervening messages in the thread.

The laptop is a Thinkpad 600E running Slackware 11.  The AP is a Linksys
WRT54G running DD-WRT.  The wireless NIC is a Linksys WPC54G.  And the
most common position in which the laptop is used is perhaps 15 feet
slant distance from the AP.  According to monitoring software on the
laptop, it has excellent signal strength and is achieving a good clean
link.  Nevertheless, the actual data rate it achieves is terrible.  2
megabits/sec (reported) is typical.

        It's not the years, it's the mileage.
