Why is my wifi speed slower than ethernet connection?

Is it common for the speed of a residential wi fi connection to be significantly less than a plug-in ethernet connection? My ethernet is getting 7.1 mps while the wifi chugs along at 1.6 mps. Is there anything I can do to increase the speed? Is this something to do with the wireless router itself (which is 4 years old)?
