Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: knetworkmanager

When placing the mouse over a wireless network listed in
knetworkmanager, it will show a popup with a number of network details.
One of those is named "bandwidth", indicating the maximum bandwidth of
the particualr wireless network.

This indicator wrongly shows bandwidth as 62 Mb/s for all networks,
instead of 54 Mb/s. See screenshot.

In case that matters, wireless netcard used is this atheros/madwifi based:
