I have been following this thread with some interest.

I have several laptops connecting to the same AP and all set up with F10
with the same apparent configs.... the difference is that one has 3945,
another 4965 a 3rd ipw2200 and the last one with an atheros based chip and
they all see different speeds - the interesting thing is that the one with
2945 is also slow like yours - so I believe that this may boil down to the
current drivers in the Fedora kernel? The ipw2200 one is actually the
slowest - and 4965 whizzes along very nicely and a lot faster - and all are
basically the same setup!

Would be nice if others may be able to confirm this?
