Erratic Airport Download Speeds

So recently my download speeds have been very odd.
Sometimes, things download at 50kb/s, but at other times, things download at 500kb/s. Yeah, I know, this could all be attributed to other people using my internet, but I don't share my internet with anyone else, and its password protected, so no one is using it without my knowledge.
Even weirder than that, though, is when I download two things at once. Usually, the first download will go at 50kb/s, but the second download will go at 550kb/s. I have absolutely no idea why.
And since you'll probably ask this, I'm running an iBook G4 1.33ghz edition and using Airport Extreme Firmware Version 405.1 (188.8.131.52.p18).

Well, it could simply be a factor of the websites you are getting things from. One site might be hammered, or have low bandwidth, and another one might be wide open.
