Subject:Max rates other than 11 and 54 Mbps?

> Kismet shows that most of the access points in my neighbourhood have a 'max rate' of either 11.0 Mbps or 54 Mbps. However, there are also a few that are listed as 18.0 Mbps or 36.0 Mbps.

As I mentioned earlier, my Fon router has a 'max rate' of 18.0 Mbps. I just did a little experiment and used FTP to upload a file. I got a speed of 2,2 MB/s or about 22 Mbps.

That's faster than the max rate reported by Kismet. What gives?
