It's pretty sad. I was at 25Mb when we got hooked up 3 months ago, but for 3 weeks now I've been dealing with this, but only on my desktop laptops work fine. Im using a Linksys AE1000 dual-band wireless card, and I've tried a sketchy looking TP link one my friend lent me, it can push it to about 1.5-2Mb/s.
Since you desktop is using wireless connectivity it sounds like you've got an interference source that's causing the problem.
If you are using a wireless mouse/keyboard or some other wireless device in close proximity to your desktop like Bluetooth devices and/or wireless telephones they all will contribute to your issue.
One way to solve your desktop issue is to have the AE1000 only use the 5 Ghz band --- but if some of your wireless devices [phones] also use the 5 Ghz band then you still will have this issue at the desktop unless you move those devices much farther away. If you do have 5 Ghz phones I suggest that you switch to DECT 6.0 phones -- those will not interfere with your desktop wireless connectivity.--
