One way to resolve that issue is disabling the IPV6 feature on your computer. One reason why the IPV6 feature slows down the download speed is because of the "translation" of the data into an IPV6 compatible form.
If that didn't help, reset your router or reconfigure it again.

I experienced the same problem with two E1500 routers (pathetic ~ .3Mbps download speeds over wireless, yet "full speed" 4.2Mbps upload over wireless and "full speed" over wired connections). I "fixed" by disabling WMM support (Applications & Gaming > QoS > WMM Support). Now my wireless connection is ~ 20Mbps/4.2Mbps (perfect for the current ISP subscription at the location of interest). Note: firmware was flashed to latest revision, 1.0.02, prior to any configuring.

Upgrade the firmware to the latest one which can be downloaded from this link
After the firmware upgrade, reset the router by pressing and holding the reset button for 30-40 seconds.
Reconfigure the router back from scratch which should resoove the issue.

Experienced this very same problem today. Updated the firmware, factory reset, my usual 25Mbps is now around 1Mbps. Oddly enough my upload speeds are the same. Disabling WMM is the only "fix" I've found.
