      fast ethernet ,slow wireless

      hi i am on the connect package and have noticed that when my computer is connected via the ethernet connection my dl speeds average 4mg but when i test my speeds connected wirelessly (even with an excellent signal strength) my dl speeds average 2mg is this amount of difference normal and if not is there any settings i can change to correct it ? also my friend checked on his pc his connection speeds and he reported there was hardly any difference between the two connections !
