The wired and wireless speed will always be different.
The maximum wired speed will be 100 Mbps. That means the wired connection is working properly.
Wireless connection speed will depend on the router and the wireless adapter on your computer.
If you are using B-Adapter then max speed will be 11 MBPS. IF it is G-Adapter then max speed will be 54 Mbps.
The N-adapter will give you more speed.
Check in the Device manager which adapter you are using on your wireless computer.
One more thing you can try changing the wireless channel on the router.
You will need to access the router settings page.
Update the drivers of your wireless adapter on the computer.

Linksys WRT160N Connection Issues.


Sadly, this router has horrible reviews and is known for this problem:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductReview.aspx?Item=N82E16833124277

Can you return it for another model?
Can you getLinksys to replace it?

the best one is the LINKSYS WRT54GL, but if you are stuck with the one you have...

If you have tried all these things and you are very brave (or don't care if you need to buy another router) why not try flashing it with an after market O/S?
