Description Mats Ljunggren 2008-06-16 14:59:50 EDT
Description of problem:
I get very poor bit rate between my RaLink RT2561/RT61 rev B 802.11g wlan card and wlan router 
(only about 4 meters between them). With kernel 2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64 I only get a bit rate of 2 
Mb/s. With previous kernels (e.g. 2.6.25.4-30.fc9.x86_64) I get 54 Mb/s.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
Bit rate of only 2 Mb/s

Expected results:
Higher bit rate, mostly 54 Mb/s

Additional info:

Comment 1 Mats Ljunggren 2008-07-22 11:26:05 EDT
With kernel 2.6.25.10-86.fc9.x86_64 the problem is gone. Bit rate is back at 54 Mb/s again.
