Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
Wireless connections are slower, than using the cable. You may have a defective wireless router, or you PC is defective. 1. now in your home are you close to the router, and do you have strong signal strength. i would take your PC to wi fi spot and see if its faster, if so, i would guess you wireless router is defective.

this is because your PC is picking up the WRTG54G which is an internal signal booster (internal gateway) to the ROUTER ITSELF.
WRTG54G is in the middle like an interpreter.
The WRTG54G is not connect to ROUTER>
thus the laptop is not connected, like sprinkler attached to the end of a hose but the HOSE not attached to the water faucet.
turn OFF laptop. RESET WRTG54G (there is a small hole you can stick a pencil in there and hold down for 15 long seconds; UNPLUG power.
PLUB back in and hit auto config button.
let WRT54G pick up a new IP ADDRESS from router. once that is done turn on laptop and it should pick up a new signal with new IP address assigned to it by the WRTG54G.
first coonect your wifi router witjh your laptop with ether net then go to this link http://192.168.0.1 then type user :admin and password also admin or blank then go to dhcp then enbale it with auto . then disconnect your cable from laptop. then go to my network places then find wireless network then simply conect your network. thtas it.
