ouch, why the bigger difference is speed on the wifi and lan?
on the lan, i get speeds up to 30MB down, 4MB up. on the wifi
i get lousy speeds 1MB down and 2MB up. ran inssider and i was getting 65-70dB
the wireless router is a linksys e1550 and the wireless card on the desk is a
broadcom 802.11g network adapter. do you guys think upgading the a 802.11n
will increase speed performance?

The bandwidth for your G adapter on the desktop is rated to 54Mbps. That decreases the further you get away from the AP. What's your wireless connection speed? Does it say you're connected at 54Mbps? or some increment less than that?

Reset the router. Linksys and most home routers have ram/processing issues with wireless and after a while will start to slow down considerably. Just pull its power for a few seconds and then try again and see if you get better results,

im not that far away from the router. it about 20' without any walls obstruction it. windows 7 tells me the signal strength: Good security type: WPA2-PSK, radio type: 802.11n. im assume im connected as 802.11g
i miss the old wireless  routers with antenna's stick out from the back.

Either way -  pull its power for a few seconds. Should get you back top normal.

You don't have any traffic policing or throttling on the Linksys device, do you?

No wifi policy's. I'll try the power pull and it's that doesn't work. I'll put my old linksys WRT54G2 v1 back and retest it.

Change channels in case you're getting too much interference which causes frequent retries.
