Are you sure it is your wireless that's at fault? Try a cable to see if
you get better rates. Else, it seems that you still have an old b-mode
(11 Mbit) card, or at least that the driver doesn't support more. If
that's the case, you'll have to buy a g or n-mode card for a better
throughput, trying to change that with iwconfig will not help.
What kind of wireless card do you have?
