WRT54GS - Afterburner question

    I have a WRT54GS v2.0 and a Dell Wireless 1350 card that claims to be able to do Afterburner (at least the driver has an option to enable it). How can I tell whether it connects at Afterburner speeds? The max reported speed is 54Mbps in the Windows systray icon. Would I see higher reported speeds if Afterburner were in use?

    Also, is there a special channel I need to use for Afterburner?

    Afterburner is a special trick. Windows will report the standard 54 for a G connection.. The only way you can tell if it is working is to use a bandwidth monitor program to see if you go over 54. OR if you had a linksys card the linksys app would should the word afterburner in the speed section when it was in use.

    Does the channel that I use matter or any channel can be used for Afterburner?

    Also, if I have other clients that do NOT support Afterburner, will all clients drop to non-Afterburner mode?
