No, that's about right. I've never gotten more than 600KB/s with regular 802.11b 11Mbit stuff. The 22Mbit is another story and another firmware.

No, everything sounds fine to me. If you disable WEP, if it's enabled, or perhaps reduce the beacon frames to one a second, you might get a slight performance increase, or not. You could try that and see, but you've pretty much at the speed limit.
