By the way I run my speed tests by copying (with rsync) a large file from a
wired machine on the same LAN, not from the external internet. That way I
get consistent speeds for transfer on each of the machines running wireless.

Either way certainly transfer speeds vary between the machines.  The only
one that appears to run the speeds I believe I should be getting from
802.11G is the 4965 machine - I am guessing on a 50% overhead for running
WPA and rsync - so with a native speed of 54mbps that translates to just
under 7MB/s and therefore I am expecting about 3.5MB/s which is not too far
away from what I am getting from that machine - all the others are slower.
