Both of my stations using linksys and cisco windows utilities indicate a rate of 11Mbps. However a "iwconfig" shows the following...

[root_at_buffalo root]# iwconfig

wlan0     IEEE 802.11-DS  ESSID:"xxxxxxxxxx"  Nickname:"buffalo"
          Mode:Master  Frequency:2.462GHz  Access Point: 00:06:25:A7:4A:73
          Bit Rate:2Mb/s   Tx-Power:-8 dBm   Sensitivity=1/3
          Retry min limit:8   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XX   Encryption
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality:0  Signal level:0  Noise level:0
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:7  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:46  Invalid misc:12   Missed beacon:0

Why would the auto setting show 2Mbps? I am using a Linksys PCI wireless card.
