Virgin Media do not guarantee speeds via wireless, what speed do you get with a wired connection with a Cat5e or better cable wired direct to the PC with 1Gbps or better Ethernet connection?

You can also try splitting the wireless signals 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands and connect to the 5Ghz band for faster speed. It sounds like your connected to the 2.4Ghz band which won't be very fast.
