Hi to all.
I'm working on two linux wireless routers. On each router i have
installed two senao cards and i'm working to with the bonding module to
aggregate two channels (1 - 6). All seems to work fine at the beginning 
...but after some test i can see a rate decrease on the second wlan 
(from 11Mbit to 1-2 Mbits).

Any suggestions ?

Thanks,
Christian
