I don't think you mentioned that other clients were working fine. Are these 802.11b/g cards or are they 802.11n but for some reason running at 54Mb/s? As said, you can change these on the fly for the card: 'iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M' John.
One of them is a Brother brand wireless printer and it has a 54G card, the other is a windows vista laptop and has 801.11N (300) card, and the third is an Apple MacBookPro with an 802.11N (300) card). I had a lot of work backlog jam, so I did not have the time to switch back to the Atheros. But I just tried it on the rtl card. Speed rate remains at 18 mb/s # iwconfig wlan1 rate 54G # iwconfig wlan1 wlan1 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"Private"Mode:Managed Frequency:2.452 GHz Access Point: 00:AA:BB:CC:DD:EE
