Bug 9273 - rt2500pci: low TCP throughput

Bug 443203 - Fedora rawhide + ralink = slow bit rate

[Hardy][Intrepid] Low bandwidth with rt2400 / rt2500 drivers

I can't call this a regression, dozens people have reported the problems
ranging from kernels 2.6.25 to 2.6.29. Perhaps in your case it worked slightly
better once, but that was not the case for all other users.

Have you tried the "iwconfig wlan0 rate54M" workaround?
