Windows 7: Wireless internet unbelievably slow on one computer

Wireless internet unbelievably slow on one computer

My internet is so painfully slow on my desktop computer. It works perfectly fine on all the other laptops/tablets in the house, (roughly 6-10mbps) whilst my desktop only gets 0.4mbps (sometimes less). It is so slow I cannot even load a webpage - it makes the desktop unusable. It has not always been this slow. I have ran a malware bytes scan and nothing came up. I did a factory reset, and it changed nothing.
My specs are:
CPU: AMD FM2 A8 6600K APU Quad Core CPU 3.9Ghz (turbo 4.2Ghz)
Motherboard: Gigabyte F2A68HM-HD2
Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600mhz Memory
Graphics Card:ATI 8570D APU Graphics
Hard Drives: 1TB Seagate Sata 7200RPM 6Gb/s Hard Drive

Please tell me any information I need to include to fix this problem as it is driving me insane.

I have to deal with 2 wireless activities, one is the Wireless DSL that actually connects to the Internet through a dish with modem aimed at an antenna farm and the other is the Wireless/Wi-Fi Networking in my house. I have desktops connected through Ethernet cables to the Routers and Notebooks connecting through wireless to the Router. The Wired connections are Gigabit and most of the Wi-Fi are 802.11g/n, don't see many problems with them. The Router and a Switch are 10/100/1000 and the Wireless in the Router is 802.11n. If your desktop is wired to the unmentioned-Router it may be the Network adapter is having issues with the Router.

W7 is unbelievably slow at times. Others have this problem? Solutions?
No exaggeration... click to open trash & it may take 7-10 seconds. Click to close a program & it may take 5-7 seconds. Using Windows Explorer, click on a directory & it may take 30-60 seconds before the files are displayed. Sometimes the response is quick like XP was but more often it's slow. -+-...

Usually slow and very inconsistent Wireless Internet.
Hi, I know this problem has been around but I can't seem to find a solution that works for me. Basically I have very slow internet 90% of the time over my wireless network, and probably at least once every couple hours the connection seems to halt altogether and require a reset of the connection...
