The signal is slow because of natural degredation, the easiest say to fix the signal is to make sure that there are no EMI emitting devices between the two computers.

There are many things that create Electro Magnetic interference, TV's, DVD Players, most everything electronic makes EMI.

Also you have the question of distance and what materials the RF signal is passing through.

What is the ditance that you are covering with the wireless, and have you made sure that no one is tapped into your network?

Edit:
Also why did you turn to wireless for more speed, wireless can only do 54 Mbps max, you can run a CAT5E 100Mbps or Gigabit LAN.

I have one and I pick up wifi hundreds of feet away in other houses. I think it's the highest gain antenna out there: about 7 times the gain of a regular bunny ear.
