    When Macook Air is connected by wired (LAN) to my Linksys WRT54GC router,
    my connection speed measures (at testmy.net) around 4.2 Mbps,
    but if I use the wireless (WLAN) I only get less than 2.0 Mbps.
    *upload speeds are roughly the same for both wired and wireless connections.

    Firmware: v1.05.7
    Leopard OSX 10.5.2
    DSL modem (pppoe): SpeedStream 5200
    Macbook Air right next to the router (roughly 1 meter away).

    Any fixes/patches/ suggestions is much appreciated?

    Here is what I tried in Wireless Settings:

    Set to Mode: G-only -> no change
    Renamed SSID -> no change
    Wireless Channel: tried from 1 to 11 --> no change
    Disabled wireless security (no WEP, WPA etc) -> no change
    Wireless Mac Filtering: at default -> no change
    Set Fragmentation Threshold to 2306, RTS Threshold to 2307 and Beacon Interval to 50 -> no change
    (Also, tried them in default settings -> no change)

    The rest of the router settings are at default.
