That's unfortunately a common experience with wireless in SL.  We generally advise people to avoid wireless if it's at all possible because it usually results in lower performance.  Wireless was never designed to handle high-volume continuous data streaming, and it's susceptible to all manner of interference.  Your cell phone and garage door opener, fluoresecent streetlights, and even your smart refrigerator can interfere with the signal.  If it's not protected, you can also lose bandwidth to everybody else in your Starbucks or apartment building.  You're better off getting your Ethernet adapter fixed and forgetting the wireless.
