Yeah it's strange. The one acting in client mode seems to get the full 11mb
and the hostap gets 2mb. If i could swap this round, it be perfect because I
only have a 2mb connection over wireless so don't care. A separate box isn't
an option as it's not at my premises, I couldn't pick my ISP up from my
location due to LOS restrictions, so that's why I have the box with a client
/ AP on the other end.
