I just bought another wireless adapter for a desktop that I just completed, since I believed the first adapter was flawed since I was getting very very low dl and upload speeds. Now, I'm not so sure. This second adapter is bringing in just the same numbers, and sometimes I can't even load a webpage with it. I tested the network on my laptop, which bring in speeds of around 18mb dl, and 1.5mb upload, so theres a trememdous gap. But also, when I plug the adapter into the desktop, the network speeds drop drastically on the laptop. I dont think this should be an issue of running out of bandwidth, because this is a very drastic drop upon the laptop down to about 1 mb or less of dl speed. The wireless adapter on the desktop is a Rosewill RNX-N150UBE. Could it be interference?

UPDATE: tried the adapter upon the laptop, works perfectly fine on it.
