I have a Broadcom BCM94311MCG Wireless Mini PCI Card on my laptop and
use the Network Manager on Fedora 9 to connect to the wireless
network. I just observed that the Wireless Speed or the Bit Rate does
not exceed 2 Mbps even when the laptop is close to the wireless
router. The bit rate used to be much higher and even touch 54 Mbps
when I had configured the interface directly without using the Network
Manager. Even though the current version of Network Manager
(NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.9.3.svn3623.fc9.x86_64) allows me to edit
connection properties but it does not provide any setting for the Bit
Rate. Is there a way out to increase the wireless connection speed
while using Network Manager ?

The same thin haqppened to me last week. I traced it to my router. Look
at the web interface of you wireless router is it is
available.Restarting the router fixed the problem.
Just did that but it didn't help. The bit rate is still stuck at 2 Mbps.
man iwconfig

Try something like iwconfig wlan0 rate auto or iwconfig wlan0 rate 54G
or something along those lines.  The part your looking up the info for
is near the top, maybe one or two pages down.

You may be able to set it via networkmanager gui but not sure

Using iwconfig does not help as long as I am using Network Manager.
Without using Network Manager and configuring the wireless interface
through the network scripts I am able to achieve much higher bit


I've noticed the same problem and I've been running "iwconfig wlan0 rate 54G" and the speed seems to increase, although network manager doesn't report any change.
