Yes, HostAP uses different speeds with each client, but AFAIK the way I
understood was that it was suppose to connect at the highest connection rate
possible to sustain a solid quality link, meaning someone right next to the
node would get a 11mb/s connection while someone further out would get a
5mb/sec connection and someone else even further out might get a 1mb
connection, it was all to do with what the quality of the link would
support. And as it is now I can connect and see a throughput of about
800kb/sec using a laptop with a built in wireless card or using a tranzeo
cpe-90 unit, I get about the same results. But if I connect using the
tranzeo unit as an AP (uses linux os+senao or CB3) I get about 5mb/sec

AFAIK in hostap mode the ifconfig speed setting doesn't matter, as it
may use different speeds for each client anyway. Someone correct me
if I'm wrong.

Is that 800 kilobytes or bits per second?

You could add that wicontrol command to config.xml (as a shellcmd
tag). See <http://doc.m0n0.ch/handbook/faq-hiddenopts.html>.
