I have a WDS link running over approx 19-20km using firmware 1.1.1/1.7.4 and hostap-driver-0.1.2 and this is working fine I am seeing http throughput (wget) of about 400KB/s sustained for a 100mb file.
doing an iwconfig it shows the rate as being 2mb? it there something broken in the reporting of this.

prism2_param wlan0 wds_type 4
prism2_param wlan0 other_ap_policy 1
iwpriv wlan0 wds_add 00:00:00:00:00
Also I am looking for any documentation on tuning the performance of this point to point link, I know its not far off now but I would like to get the max possible throughput.
