I appreciate the help but please reference https://www.sevenforums.com/network-s...-internet.html. Independent of what else may be happening on the network my comupter gets significantly lower download speed then other devices and/or when it's using a different device to manage it's wireless connection.

Just thought of QoS (Quality of Service), please have a read here.

I really don't know what else to tell you.

Tried disabling QoS without any noticeable difference. Does anyone have any other ideas as to what might be going on with this issue?

Try disabling unnecessary Startup Apps and Services running from msconfig.
Click on Start, type msconfig press enter, locate Start up Tab first and uncheck/disable Startup Apps that are needed.
Some Anti-Virus/Security Software do hog resources.

I only have KeePass and Avast! running on startup, and while I agree that Avast can potential hog my network resources that doesn't help me fix the crux of the issue which is that using different independent methods for connecting to the same network (well, and a 3g tether just for a speed reference) yields drastically different connection speeds in the same background environment, and indeed tested within as close of a time frame as possible ~1 minute. Is it possible that Windows isn't properly using my wireless adapter, or worse that there was something wrong with it out of the box?

i've read this thread, i dont understand why you arent or it only has been suggested once, that you change your wireless channel

.....change your wireless channel. go get the admin or ask your room mate to do so.

also do install a sniffer, to possibly shed some light on this also
