TP-Link 3G router (TL-MR3420) question...

Hi. After years of messing with ad-hoc and AP 'direct-connection' networks, I have finally taken the plunge and got a router! Internet-wise, it works great. What I am less than happy about is the data transfer rate between my 2 pc's that are connected to it. Although the router is touted as being able to transfer at up to 300Mb/s, the best rate I can achieve transferring between pc's is 1.1MB/s, (megabytes) whereas the same pc's connected directly, one configured as an AP can manage 2MB/s easily. Note that this rate is achievable even though one of the pc's has only 54Mb/s abg-wireless, which Wiki states can manage about a 22Mb/s (bits) transfer-rate. When you include the mandatory error-correction bits etc. the 2MB/s (16 megabits) rate I was used to pretty much tells me that the pc's wireless is working properly.

My question, why am I only seeing half that rate when I add the router? And is this 'typical'?

Edit: I've just discovered that when I transfer from the abg-wireless pc to the bgn-wireless pc, it at 'full-speed' - 2Mb/s. But only half that speed when transferring to the abg-wireless pc.
