iwconfig saying "Bit Rate=1 Mb/s" can be safely ignored.  If there is
a bitrate indication on transmitted packets in tcpdump, then that's
bogus too, as rate control is done in hardware.  (I.e. if you want to
verify the rate at which a packet is transmitted, you'll have to sniff
from another machine.)
