If your wireless connection uses the same router then I wouldn't have thought it's the router that's causing the problem. That just isn't logical. If it was the router, both the wired and wireless connection would exhibit the same problem since they both have to go through the same router.
More likely it's some software or setting problem on the computer you're having the trouble with.
If it's wired to the router, try changing the ethernet cable (use as short a cable as possible, not one that's several feet too long).

Patch cords (ethernet cable) can be up to 10m in length i.e. 30 foot long with no detremental effect to the signal on the LAN
Edit : This is because you are using a straight through cable not a cross over cable, this is to do with the way the plug is terminated on the end of the patch cable. This link explains the difference between the 2 and shows you how to make a cross over cable if you are directly connecting 2 pcs together without the aid of a switch or router
