Do you use the in-kernel orinoco driver? I've had similar
problems with that one.  The more recent orinoco-0.13beta1
from http://ozlabs.org/people/dgibson/dldwd works for me!

I've recently installed the orinoco gold card and it's working very well. Except it keeps dropping down to 2MB even when 5' away. I don't know how this can be managed from the drivers or what can be 'tweaked'.

What I'm having trouble with right now is getting this to install.
I've downloaded the 0.13beta1 and the kernel-source-2.4.18 deb package, but I'm still unable to compile the driver

bash-2.05a$  cd orinoco-0.13beta1/
bash-2.05a$ make
cc -MD -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -pipe -D__KERNEL__ -DPCMCIA_DEBUG=1 -DMODULE -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -I/lib/modules/2.4.18-686/build/include -c hermes.c

Given sufficient time, what you put off doing today will get done by itself.
