If thats the case, try doing a firmware upgrade on the router followed by a factory reset and see how that works...

Also, what ISP do you have and what brand/model is your router.
Thanks for the suggestions! When connecting my laptop directly to the ethernet cable, my speeds match my desktop. I think the problem lies with my router, because I get the slow speeds when connecting wirelessly with my wife's laptop, too.

My ISP is Verizon FIOS. They gave me an Actiontec 4 Port Wireless, Model: MI424WR-C, Firmware Version: 4.0.16.1.55.0.10.4.3. Is that something I can upgrade at their website?
