Download much slower than upload speed on WiFi

I seem to have the opposite problem to most folks, our PC connected directly to the Hub6 typically gets a download speed of around 40Mbps and upload of 6-7Mbps which is fine.

However the laptops working on WiFi are saying they typcally get 5-6Mbps download and 12-13Mbps upload!

At night the download can often drop to less then 1Mbps but even then it still shows 5-6Mbps upload.

Can anybody suggest an explanation and any way to improve things please?

Re: Download much slower than upload speed on WiFi

1) Are you having a problem on any other devices, using the same Wi-Fi ?
2) if you plug in using Ethernet cable, if your Laptop has a port, is this the same?
A few things to try: Ask the broadband provider to reset the connection, it may take a few days to adjust, but should be better.
Also check out the Wi-Fi Card in the Lap top are the drivers up-to-date?
