I recently purchased a D-Link wireless router and two wireless network adapters so I could upgrade from a wired network to a wireless network for the two desktop computers I have at home.
I have enjoyed 24 Mbps speeds on both computers while they were connected to a wired network. After setting up the wireless network, I have one computer that still tests at 24 Mbps, but the other is only getting 9-10 Mbps. It has been that way for two days now.
My setup is as follows:

2 desktop computers:
Pentium 4 CPU 3.06Ghz 2GB RAM, Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3
Pentium D CPU 3.00Ghz 2.98GB RAM, Windowx XP Professional Service Pack 2

Broadband Internet service through Comcast with an Arris cable modem.

D-Link DKT-408 Wireless N Router
2 D-Link Wireless N USB Adapter

Not sure what other information is needed, but please let me know if I can provide more.

Thanks you in advance for your help.

No, it is the Pentium 4.

I have tried a number of things to help improve the speed. Changed the wireless channel several times. Default channel was six. Have tried 1, 9, and now 11. No improvement. I have also moved the router away from an outer wall. There are no portable phones, microwaves, etc., nearby.
