Fast Surfing But Horrible Downloads

Does anyone know why when I surf the web it goes insanely fast, but when it comes to downloading a game demo, or almost any other thing, I'm only getting around 65kbs? The max I've had in a long time was 200kbs. That's only when nobody else is on the internet on their computers in the house. I have extra speed roadrunner connection so I should be getting very fast speeds. I am connected through a wireless connection. Any ideas? I'd really like to get at least frickin 600kbs.
