Summary0008460: Wireless tools report wrong network bitrate

Both NetworkManager and iwconfig always report only 1Mb/s, but actually system can upload and download much faster. Even when doing so, it keeps reporting same rate. Other devices on same network report more reasonable rates, so it doesn't seem a router problem. Also reading /proc/net/wireless reports link value as 45.

Using Intel AX200 card on a 5G band network, FWIW.
