Wifi specs? 300mbps?

Hi,

My router is a Belkin 300N one. It has two antennae and suports two spatial streams on the 2.4GHz band.

iwconfig wlan0

on the Joggler says:

Bit Rate=135 Mb/s

I was expecting 270 MB/s as I've enabled channel bonding (40MHz).
The RT2770 supports 300 doesn't it? I see it has two antennae attached.
Or is the 1T2R nature of it (1 transmit 2 receive streams) making the iwconfig command show the lower transmit speed?

(Note I am using it as a Squeezebox server using the rather fabulous SqueezePlay OS v1.07)

Cheers,
Glenn
