This article from Mac Megasite (Final 802.11g spec reduces data rate) has really got me down. Airport extreme was one of the reasons I purchased the PowerBook instead of the iBook.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc. (IEEE) has approved a new and final draft standard for 802.11g wireless LANs that will have a true throughput for Internet-type connections of between 10M and 20Mbit/sec., far lower than 54Mbit/sec. raw data rate initially billed for the standard.
