Unhappy Router Slows Down Hardwired PC

My Belkin F6D3230-4 wireless router has been less than a friend to me.
I'm now finding that my Desktop PC is experiencing a dramatic slowdown in connection speeds since it's been connected through my router. I've tinkered around a bit with my router settings, but so far nothing has worked. Ironically, my laptop is performing relatively well: from 40+ feet I get very good speeds though forwarded ports.
I'm somewhat tech saavy; I've had no problems with my D-Link router at home.
I have spent hours on the phone with Belkin tech support, and just as much time on hold. I'm not anxious to go through the waiting game (for bad answers) again. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Thanks.

Although this can be because of the router itself, it could also be because of your ISP. Do you have DSL or Broadband? What speeds are you getting?
