Hi, After doing some searching in the archives I found that HostAP is set to
2/MB here is a copy of what Status.php listed...

wi0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
	inet 192.168.10.1 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.10.255
	ether 00:02:6f:3b:47:05
	media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet <hostap> (DS/2Mbps <hostap>)
	status: associated
	ssid "Skyways Wireless Node 23" 1:"Skyways Wireless Node 23"
	stationname "Skyways Wireless Node 23"
	channel 10 authmode OPEN powersavemode OFF powersavesleep 100
	wepmode OFF weptxkey 1

With this I haven't been able to get more than about 800K/sec download speed
rates.  Within the archives a command of:

"Wicontrol wi0 -t 6" was to be executed within the exec.php page. This was
said to force the card to use the maximum connection rate possible.

This command gave the following:

 wi0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
	inet 192.168.10.1 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.10.255
	ether 00:02:6f:3b:47:05
	media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect <hostap>
	status: associated
	ssid "Skyways Wireless Node 23" 1:"Skyways Wireless Node 23"
	stationname "Skyways Wireless Node 23"
	channel 10 authmode OPEN powersavemode OFF powersavesleep 100
	wepmode OFF weptxkey 1


I haven't had the time this morning to test the rates on this node yet, but
if it does improve the connection rates, I was wanting to know how I can
permanently save these settings to the node, as to when I reboot the node it
reverts back to it's original setting.
