    My Airport Extreme and Airport Express are set up on a WDS network. Similar to what I read here:

    My PowerBook G4 gets a data rate of only 11-36. Is that normal? What range should I be shooting for? Why does it fluctuate?

    I looked in System Profiler but didn't see anything to indicate the capabilities of the Airport Card in terms of data rate...

    where are you getting the data rates from?

    it should be 54mbps, but if your signal is bad then it will give you worse numbers (which is most likely what you are getting).
