Very poor wifi speed

My new computer is fitted with a Realtek TRL8185 PCI WiFi card and connects to my Orange Livebox. The signal strength is showing as either very good or excellent but the speed shows as only 1 or 2 Mbps. My other computer which sits next to the new one shows low signal strength but has a speed of 18 or 24Mbps. Can anyone help with why the new machine has such a low transfer speed.

When I got a new d-link router it would only connect to the net at 750Kbs. I had to do a firmware upgrade then it ran at over 5Mbs, seems poor for a new device but it's worth getting the latest drives for everything.
