The Access Point, or whatever you are connecting to, must also support "N" wireless (~300Mbps); otherwise, the connection speed will be the "lowest common" connection speed, which in this case is "G" (54Mvps).
Note that if a "B" device, such as an older laptop, connects to the Access Point, the Access Point will drop down to 12Mbps for all connections! (Yes, twelve megabits per second).
You will have to replace the Access Point, or connect to an "N" Access Point if you are on a network with several AP's.
Usually, a device will renegotiate a slower speed to compensate for interference. slower speeds are sometimes the most reliable. Its possible to change your wifi channels and try to get one that has less interference, and maintain a stronger signal. You might also want to ensure that any cordless phones in your area are NOT on the same frequency range as your router, because as soon as "Old Great Aunt Mildred" calls you or your neighbor, your wifi goes bye bye.
Wireless connections are running on a slower speed by definition.
A wired connection with this router sets the maximum speed at 100 Mbps.
A wireless signal in a 802.11b network has a maximum speed of 11 Mbps, and a 802.11g network has a maximum speed of 54 Mbps.
These numbers are theoretical numbers and never achieved in reality. (like a Toyota Prius makes 60mpg...)
So depending on your wireless network adapter and how your setup physically looks like (distance to the router, interference with telephones, microwaves etc.) it is absolutely possible that you wireless speed is considerably slower than your wired connection.

It is not compatible at all wifi is a wireless connection and you are adding another device called zyxel it is like i have adsl unlimited and am adding a new connection with adsl normal of course it will go down not same speed at all wifi connection is 54 mbps normal speed where as zyxel is too slow with only 10 mbps
Your HP G60 has an 802.11 b/g card. 802.11g has a maximum rated speed of 54 mbps, like the router. You never get the actual "rated" speed with wireless cards, this would occur only with maximum signal strength, no network protocol overhead, no security, etc. if you were to replace your current card in the Satellite with an 802.11 b/g card, you would get comparable results.
I would ensure that the product is operational by swapping it with the other WG111, then ensure that you have the card setup properly, make sure you have the lastest drivers from Netgear, I have fixed some problem with the WG111 in this fashion. If that fails then I would try upgrading to a 2.0 usb. i'll try to see if I can create this with and old machine I'll keep you posted
