ahh, marketing. Some people will believe anything!
Check the table at
or numerous other guides courtesy of google. This shows that maximum
throughput is roughly 27Mb/s for 54g, but in my experience its much less
in the real world.
Note that configuring a card for 54mb/s is the maximum - unless you are
quite close (distance wise), have little interference and dont have a
busy 802.11b on the same AP, you are not even going to see a 54, but a
fallback. And I think encryption will clip it even further if you are
using that (as you should be!)
