Awfully slow download speeds when using wifi

  blackylad 13:45 01 Feb 2010

Here is my story thanks for looking. Due to some connection issues (due I think to a dodgy phone extension) I have decided to setup a wireless network. I have purchased a TP-Link wireless adapter and have setup a wireless network with my netgear dg834g (both wireless B/G )without too much trouble. The only problem is when i do a speed test my download speed drops massively using wireless. With the lan cable connected it varies between 6 and 7 meg (which i am quite happy with). As soon as i connect through wireless it is constantly 1.7meg down 0.4 up. Is there a simple solution to this problem Any help would be much appreciated.Also different speed tests online give different results, I use think broadband is this the best one???

download speeds were fine from this test thanks. The problem is I have now moved the router away from the comp to the main phone socket and the speed has dropped below 1 meg now. Any thoughts??
