I have nine computers on my network and most of them run great but one of them is running really slow.

When I ping another computer on the network from the slow one, the ping averages about 1000ms or it will just times out. When I ping it from another computer it's around 900ms

Pings generally come back at about 3ms on my network.

The computer is using a D-link wireless N card and according to the little icon in the lower right corner of the screen it's running at 300Mbps (where it should be) I have two other computers that are similar to this one and they don't have this problem.

the signal strength appears to be good, not great but good, this computer worked properly last week and I haven't changed anything.

Any ideas or should I fill it with ice and Red bull? (actually I like the ice and red bull idea.)
The speed of sound is defined by the distance from door to computer divided by the time interval needed to close the media player and pull up your pants when your mom shouts "OH MY GOD WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!!"

DO THE ICE AND RED BULL!!! No....wait...DONT! lol

You might want to check if there are any updates for the drivers on that computer. Also, look in the event viewer (START>CONTROL PANEL>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>EVENT VIEWER) and check the SYSTEM LOG. Look for any errors from the following sources; TCPIP, DHCP.
