Yes. Another router works fine all around. If it is a problem with the router being faulty, thats ok, but I want to be able to prove that. Another interesting thing is that this router allows me to switch out the wifi card, so just replacing the wireless card is also an option.

I don't think that the problem is wireless interference, because as I stated above, traffic between my laptop (over wifi) to a local server is quite fast, as fast as I can reasonably expect wifi to be. I have tested this with the wireless router on a clear channel (I did check that) and within a few feet of the laptop in question, it being the only wireless device connected. If this were simply that the wireless was universally slow, I would agree with you, and because of that, I have already tested everything you have mentioned. Thanks for the ideas though.

speedtest.net matches the confusing http and scp performance, fast on the desktop and slow on the wireless.

No, I mean I was removing half the plug from the socket, disconnecting some pins, but not others. Unfortunatly I don't have a continuity tester available right now. I could probably get one, and I would like to, in order to test the cable.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. The wiggling was actually moving the connector in the socket. I've updated the original question.
