wireless connection problems

I am having problems with a slow and intermittant O2 wireless connection on my Medion Desktop Computer. O2 tell me that they show me having a download speed of 2.6mbs (I live in the stix), but my actual speed varies from 0.4 to 2.2mbs and is continually dropping offline.
If I use my laptop in the same room as the desktop, my laptop seems to be consistant at 2.2mbs and does not drop offline.
O2 cannot seem to diagnose the problem.
Could there be a problem with my desktop wireless receiver
any help appreciated

"Could there be a problem with my desktop wireless receiver"

Yes that's possible. Are you using an internal wireless card or is it a USB wireless adapter.
