PC speed is slower than my Laptop

Good Evening all,
Was looking to see if i could have some advice. I have got a BT home hub 3 type b and had fibre optic for some months and is great. Recently however the speed has suddenly dropped for my PC now with only a 2.5mb download and 8-9mb upload, while my PC is sticking on about 40MB. Both are using wireless although different cards and my PC has been working fine with the NIC card for a long time.
I also have power over ethernet on my PC and have tested with that but again am receiving the exact same amount of bandwidth.
Troubleshooting done soo far: Checked with BT to see if any faults on exchange and none Rebooted hub and PC Ran virus and malware scans
Any advice will be greatly appreciated. My only other thought for this could it be perhaps an error on my system as i was downloading alot at the time with steam updating and other network applications running could it have forced the network speed to go more stable at a lower rate. I have been monitoring the speed for a day or so and it hasn't moved more than a 100kb/s or so.
