    My Netgear 54mbps Access Point has a number of settings regarding 11b
    or 11g gettings as well as AUTO.

    I can also set various speeds as well as BEST.

    Why would one want to transmit at a slower speed if the adapter cards
    all appear to have 'automatic fall back'.

    Reason I ask is that my current wireless network is very eratic,
    unless I have a full signal I'm getting problems.

    My Netgear AP works fine with a Netgear 54mbps PC card, it is two 11b
    11mbps cards from different manufacturers I am having problems with.

    try running NetPerSec this will tell you exactly what you are getting
    remember 54Mbps doesnt mean that is what you will get!

    Tried to download, kept taking me to a page to sign up for a magazine.
    Ah yes, the big advertising print and the much smaller 'It's not quite
    as good as you expect' print.
