Wireless network running slow

Having had to reformat my desktop pc a couple of weeks ago - i've noticed a massive slow down in transfer time when I'm moving files over the wireless network. My desktop is hardwired to the router and my laptop is connected wirelessly to the router.

I do have a NAS drive that i've never been able to get to transfer stuff quick enough to use it as it's intended - so I use that as a USB drive connected to the desktop - (this used to be of benefit as it speeded up file transfer, but now it takes 3 hrs to move a 3-4gb file no matter which drive it comes from - if it's going over the wireless network, it takes an age to move)

I don't really see what has changed - network wise. The routers settings are not affected by the reformat, granted the router is a 802.11b - and the laptop is g standard but that's always been the case.

Can anyone please talk me through - checking settings etc - I don't know where to look, what to check or what the settings would be if I could find them! - Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation,
