Slow Download Speeds on Desktop, Fast download Speeds on Laptop

I am having issues with my desktop. I am getting download speeds using speedtest.net of about 3mbps. On my laptop however I am getting speeds of 20-25mbps.

I have run a virus scan and malware scan and both came out as clean. What else could be causing my computer to suffer such slow download speeds?

Both are wireless?

Disconnect the network cable from the desktop and insert the cable in the laptop. The laptop is still fast now?
