I have some problem to use Orinoco (Avaya) card in Linus on very network loaded system. I have AP-3000 with 2 cards on 2.4Ghz - one card for connecting clients (about 20), second card - only for direct connection to my Linux box (default gateway to all clients). On linux i have such problem: 

eth2      IEEE 802.11-DS  ESSID:"foo"  Nickname:"foo"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.452GHz  Access Point: 01:01:01:01:01:01
          Bit Rate:2Mb/s   Tx-Power=15 dBm   Sensitivity:3/3
          Retry limit:4   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:2347 B
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality:41/92  Signal level:-53 dBm  Noise level:-94 dBm
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:61047
          Tx excessive retries:110076  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

1. Why my link speed only 2Mb ? I try to set 11M fixed, but it has no effect. As you can see Link quality is good.
2. Why such more Rx invalid frag:61047
3. Why such more Tx excessive retries:110076

What can i do in this case ?

Thank you
