      Wireless Vs. Wired

      Not sure if this is the right forum to put this.

      When on wireless my connection speed is roughly a third of what I get when I am connected by a cable.
      So for example, I have just done a speed test now on my laptop with the cable in and I got 12mb/s. I then took the cable out and switched my wireless on and got 4mb/s.
      Is there meant to be a difference? and if there is, is it supposed to be that much?
