      What ever the issue is it isn't with Sky. Speed test is not the most reliable test to run to be honest and you will see differences. It may just be that your desktop isn't getting as good a signal wirelessly, what device are you using to create the wireless connection from the router to the desktop?

      What OS are you running? If it is XP, click the DrTCP link below, do the online tweak test and if it makes recommendations, download DrTCP to put them into effect.

      If you are not running XP, do a network statistics check by opening a Command Prompt and typing netstat /b and hit enter. Make sure you recognise all the connections being made.

      You could also try downloading and running Malwarebytes to check for malware.
      Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

      Also check that you are using the latest drivers for your wireless card.

      Plug in a wire and do it again, I suspect you will then get full speed.
