wireless internet speed

Specs: xp pro, 2.0g/ 3g
my son's computer uses a local wireless internet service. no dish, just an inside wireless receiver and external modem. i had to reinstall his xp pro os. everything seems to be fine, but his internet seems exceptionally slow. his plan type is 128k/64k. i downloaded a few protective programs, and the download speed stayed around 15 Kbps. he called the isp, and they had no suggestions. does the download speed seem slow for the plan type, and if so, any suggestions.

p.s. i checked msconfig, and there are no startup items running in the backround. his 40g hard drive has 37g free. he has 2g ram.

thanks,

"i had to reinstall his xp pro os"

My guess is that's the problem. Did you install all the drivers? motherboard chipset, video, sound, network, wireless, etc? Did you install all the Windows updates? Service Pack 3?
