Yes, about a year ago I was using a Linksys WAP11 (Intersil firmware) and I
tested it with Cisco AP's (don't know the model) at work.  This was with
WinXP -- they require the use of a VPN product, and at that time there was
a problem with the Linux driver for it.  I got a download speed of 390-405
kbyte/sec (close to the max you can expect with 802.11b) and an upload
speed of 110 kbyte/sec.  I didn't do enough research to find out why upload
is slower than download on WinXP, but similar numbers were obtained with a
Dell Truemobile 1150 (Orinoco clone, Lucent-Agere firmware), so the finger
of blame may point to the WinXP protocol stack.

Best wishes supporting CGIAR's mission.
