Windows 7: Download speed issues

Download speed issues

Hi
When I'm connected to my router by cable I get download speeds advertised (+15 megabits) by the ISD provider.
When I disconnect the cable and connect the same computer wirelessly to the router, download speeds drop to below 4 megabits.
Nothing else changes, connected by wire = high speed downloads; connected wirelessly = low speed downloads.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Cheers
Mitch

Hi,
the router is a D-Link DIR625 Wireless N, 802.11n, firmware 3.08

the ethernet cable has CAT 5E printed on it

the wireless network adapter is D-Link RangeboosterN, Marvell driver 1.0.5.2, the most up-to-date one that I can find

thanks,
Mitch
