Wireless and Downloads - explain this please ?

Glad to be here, I have a huge problem, which I´ve posted in several
forums without a good explanation on what is going on, so I will now ask
I have a wireless router (ASUS WL-520g), which works fine, but there
are some issues about download speeds that doesn´t seem logical to me.
It was the same with another router I had, so it´s not that.
An example (there are many others websites like this):
1. Imagine website 1 and website 2, both have the same large file
(100MB) available for download.
2. I connect my laptop using a cable and get about 415 KB/sec download
speed, both for website 1 and website 2.
3. I then connect my laptop using wireless, and now it becomes
Website 1 gives me about 405 KB/sec (a little lower than cable, but
perfectly understandable).
Website 2 gives me only about 76 KB/sec (why is the wireless so much
I don´t get it ? Any thoughts about this ? Please note, I only download
1 file at the time, clear my cache, and then re-connect.
