Newbie Wifi tx/rx speeds via RB411AH with R52

Hi MT Wireless experts!!!

I have a simple WLAN setup with a RB800 as the primary router for the HS. From the RB800 I get 4+Mbps download speed, but at the wireless client I get a max of 80Kbps

Is there something I can change on the wireless card to improve the wireless client download speeds? I only have one R52 card in the RB411AH and one 2.4Ghz Omni antenna.

This is the configuration I have on my RB411AH with the R52 wlan card

0 R name="wlan1" mtu=1500 mac-address=xxxx arp=enabled disable-running-check=no

Thanks in advanced.

just in case anyone comes across this post, i did some test and for my case changing the wireless frequency helped wit hthe speed and stability of the wifi connection.

hope this helps anyone else.
