Slow connection with Broadcom Netxtreme 57xx gigabit

I have a 20Mb broadband connection. My main PC is a Dell Optiplex GX520 with Broadcom netxtreme 57xx ethernet. I also have an IBM T60 laptop.
I get an average '''' dowload speed of 18000kb/s on the laptop but only an average of 1200kb/s on my PC. That's almost 17000kb/s difference.
I've tried updating all drivers and firmwear but no change.

Can someone help... PLEASE!!

Liteshow adapter will not communicate with notebook computer

The InFocus Liteshow I uses an ad-hoc wireless connection by default. Open the properties of your wireless device, click "Let Windows manage this device", go to the advanced properties and change the setting "Networks to access" to "Computer-to-computer (ad-hoc) only". This worked for me.
