Can you test via ethernet cord by passing the router see what speeds you get then.

Odd, you are getting near the same with your other machine on wireless....

 

Only thing I could think to do from this point to see if it is your  wireless driver is to test with a usb wireless device.

Wow that is terrible. Lets reset your router to factory settings.

You will most likely not be able to connect with the problem machine now, since we set that static ip

 

You will need to reverse what we have done with the machine as far as setting the static ip only.

 

Make sure your ipv4 settings are set to obtain ip automatically.

Yes it should be if you could get a usb device and test then you will know if it is the issue. That is the next logical step IMO
