Why slow download on one network PC?

I have 2 PC's linked by Cat 5 network cable to a D Link adsl modem router as a small home network using XP home. One PC downloads at 56Kb/s but the other never reaches above 9Kb/s.. not much faster than dial up.
I have swapped network cards, cables etc, but the the result is the same.. one PC (the slower one by sheer CPU,memory etc) downloads the same files much faster.... any ideas?????????
