Default Broadband speed but incredibly slow wireless

My internet speed is around 10 Mbps. Pages load in less than a second. However, when I use the wireless internet, pages that normally load in a second now load 20 seconds and sometimes up to a minute. The little wireless icon in my taskbar says this:

Wireless Network Conneciton (NETGEAR)
Speed: 54.0 Mbps
Signal Strength: Excellent
Status: Connected

Can someone help me out here? Why is my wireless so slow and why does the icon say it's incredinly fast?

Your connection may be 54M but the data transfer rate is much slower (11M), and is also affected by such things as signal quality, interference, security implimentation, AP mode, and obviously the quality of the equipment being used.

Do some research about external factors in your area (net stumbler is a good start).

Using security on your wireless connection will also slow data transfer.

It sure sounds like an interference issue. Expanding a bit on Fred's mention of interference. What other wireless gizmos are around you? Commonly mentioned:

Cordless phones
Wireless security cameras
Baby monitors
Microwave ovens
Video modems

If you can, try changing channels.
