    Yeah. You're going from wired to wireless. Looks like you might be on G instead of N speeds. How is your router configured (defaults or customized settings)? Also, is the firmware up to date?

    Fairly average....back when I was running G wireless the max I'd get was around 18 or 19 megs...usually in the mid teens depending on other factors in your home. 18 megs seems to be the average "real world speed" of G.

    I have the same problem... direct internet is fast (20mbits) but over wlan it drops to about 5mbits ... i have the linksys wrt54g router. I guess I need a wireless N router.
