I did a SpeedTest (from speedtest.net).

Why is there such a huge difference? It's a Netgear router that was bought last year (not sure the model, but it's a pretty good one). The TV and one other computer are on the wireless.

How old is the wireless computer/network adapters? Your net adapters might just need a simple driver update.
