Good signal, low speed, wrt54gs/wmp54gs

    Hi, I've got a problem here. I used to have wrt54GS v.2.0 (HyperWRT 2.1b1 + Thibor12 100% signal) and wusb54g it worked OK, but when I installed new wmp54gs v.1.1 ( the lates linksys off. drivers) - it gives me good and very good signal (using a 100% free ch) but the speed is 1mb-18mb.
    Moreover, the only way I can connect is by using wep shared key or with open network, at the same time with wpa personal the network is not visible at all. :cry:

    So here are my questions - why the speed is so low, what I’m doing wrong? (firmware was installed the way it supposed to be installed, no problem with that). Are there any alternative drivers for wmp54gs that I can use to fix this?

    And why my network is not visible while using wpa psk? (both with wusb54g and wmp54gs, and in point of fact my old wrt54gs 1.0 with old linksys firmware had the same problem, so I guess it is not a problem with my v2.0)

    And finally, I’m wondering if it's safe (comparatively, as I dont transfer sensitive private data at all) to use an open network, and MAC key authentication (considering I have only 1 wireless client in my network)?

    Thx in advance
