    Can you tell us what specific router you have and the network settings used on the router and your MBP?

    Do any of the Windows machines upload something?

    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle, since that question may have been asked several times?

    Sounds like another machine is using up all the bandwidth. Or do you have an old 802.11b/g router?

    My guess is that your routers not very good or someone else is using up all the speed by downloading something.

    Buy a new 802.11n wireless router and things will be a lot faster.
