And, doesn't the whole network drop back to 54Mbps if /any/ device on
the network is not from the same manufacturer (i.e. in this case a
D-Link)? So, for example, if the user was just squeaking by with a
108Mbps wireless connection and someone booted a laptop with a built-in
Broadcom or whatever wi-fi card and joined the network, all of a sudden
playback would become unreliable.
