Ethernet connection to wireless router half speed

  Yedi 00:29 06 Nov 2004

I have a BT Voyager 2100 wireless router connected to a 1Mbps broadband service. The laptop connected wirelessly to this service hums along at 944Kbpsl, but the desktop PC hardwired to the router via a 10/100 Ethernet card manages between 360 and 450 Kbps. Any suggestions where I should look for the cause of this discrepancy - which should be the other way round. Neither BT nor the ISP has any useful suggestions.

Check for spyware..

I have run both Spybot and Ad-aware without finding anything untoward. Norton Anti-Virus does not report anything neither does ZoneAlarm.
I have tested my wife's laptop hardwired into the router and achieved the same speed as it manages wirelessly, viz. around 960 Kbps, but my box continues to hump along at 3-400 Kbps.
I have run my PC through Norton System Works without any significant failures highlighted.

Any other ideas?
