It's probably a cap by your ISP???

You might be allowed to download say, 10GB p/day, but you won't necessarily get the same download speed all day, at peak times ISP's typically choke everyones connection in the interest of EVERYONE'S speed.
Does this sound right or is it more a NIC problem?

Oh, my bad, i'm thinking UK ISP's

NIC - Network Interface card (your wireless card probably).

Where and what are you trying to download? You'll not always get optimum speeds from websites, Adobe for example takes me around 25minutes to download their flash plugin (2MB or so), yet MS Office from the MS website took around 10 minutes to download (750MB).

Also, although Speedtest.net is relatively accurate, i have tested my connection half a dozen times consecutively all with various results (some not so good!).

If the speed is consistently poor, contact your ISP, they'll be able to tell you if it's a ISP issue, your router or Windows.

Probably the modem/router restart if you did it.

Or the driver installed without software? Works for me.

You can adjust the power settings in the control panel, from there you can prevent the laptop from sleeping.

Apart from making sure that your network card is up to date with drivers etc. I unfortunately have no suggestions for your poor speeds. I suggest taking to your ISP.
