No surprise there then.
Wireless is duplex -- so speed claims can be divided by two.
He said he has a wireless router, but did not say if he was connected directly to it, and you should say "half duplex".
So, I guess to the OP, were you connected via Ethernet to your router or over wireless? Like Fihart said, wired vs wireless can be a very big difference.
If you were directly connected, then you may just need a faster router. dLink has a pretty good one that supports IPv6. I have the Netgear 3700 myself. It's a greater router, but dd-wrt doesn't full support it quite yet and it has no IPv6 support. But at least it'll scale up to ~400mbits which is a heck of a lot faster than 60mbit.
