Is a usb wireless adapter slower than a pcmcia or pci adapter? Because I have a laptop with an internal wireless adapter, a desktop with a usb wireless adapter, and a desktop with a wired connection. I downloaded a broadband speed test and ran it on all the computers. The wired desktop and the wireless laptop had the same speed, but the desktop with usb adapter had 1/3 the speed. So, is there any explanation for this?
P.S. the network is 802.11g

I think some other factors are coming into play when your working with wireless and wired and usb.
Is the USB connected UBS 1.1 or USB 2.0?
 USB 1.1 allowed a maximum transfer rate of 12Mbits/second. It is now obsolete, but both of its speeds (1.5Mbps & 12Mbps) are being adopted into USB 2.0, and they are now called Original USB officially.  USB 2.0 has a raw data rate at 480Mbps, and it is rated 40 times faster than its predecessor interface, USB 1.1, which tops at 12Mbps.
USB wireless adapters actually contain the same assembly as PCMCIA cards (and often an actual PCMCIA card inside), with a PCMCIA to USB interface

Heres something good to read
