Try a speed test.
My MBP via wireless connection sittin' 75' from the router is:6586kb/s down and 481 up.
Meanwhile my desktop XP machine with a gigabit connection on current test is only:4921 and 464
Now I may have to go see what's wrong with my windows machine - naw - ain't used it in awhile anyway.
My speeds are a lot slower than yours in comparison:
-G4 Mini 1320kb/s down, 320kb/s up. This is wireless with a Belkin Wireless g router about 45-50 feet away.
-Dell Dimension 1317kb/s down, 321kb/s up. This is with the Dell plugged directly into the router with a 3' cable.
I have SBC DSL service.
