Should be able to get at least 20 Mbps through a WRAP even with the
slower 1.3 versions.

The real max throughput of 802.11g is ~25 Mb, so it really isn't going
to hold you back *that* much from the max of 802.11g.

Which makes sense depends on your specific situation.  Either should
work fine and performance shouldn't really be much different between
them, so it depends on what you prefer.
