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.
