Wireless Speed Issues

It actually is a speed issue. I used ftp to check speed and the upload from 
the client rocks but the download sucks. There is definitelty a 
compatibility issue between Orinoco cards and HostAP.  I tried a pcmcia card 
and a usb orinoco and both had the same results. Probably a non standard way 
the orinoco negotiates with the ap.
