wireless g is only capable of 54Mbs, so its speeds would not be expected to be dependably as fast as a wired connection, even if you had one of those set-ups that boast 108Mbs; those are only two simultaneous 54Mbs links that your computer would require special equipment to be able to utilize AND it would still only be two links at 54Mbs. PLUS, the thing about wireless connections is that they are all susceptable to interference from almost anything electronic, including refridgerators, TV's, alarm clocks, electric pencil sharpeners, stereos, dvd players, personal music players, cell phones, cordless phones, air pumps for aquariums, etc., etc..ALL of which degrade your wireless connection. That's not to say that you could not have a faulty router, but I would try installing the Verizon connection wizard AND also one or more of the several good TCP Optimizers out there. Also you might check the settings on your network interface card; half\full duplex, 100 or 1000, power controls, etc. No matter what router you are using, those issues would affect them all.
