What kind of wireless adapter do you have in your computer? Is it N capable? If not, 54Mbps is the best you're going to get.

To the OP: you've got a 802.11b/g wifi card, so you won't be getting "N" speeds, just "G" speeds.

Now, update your system specs instead of just putting it in your post, so the next time you post a question people can just click on "My System Specs" and see what hardware/software you have.

*Edit* - I must need glasses. It's b/g/n, but limited to 72Mbps, per the specs linked by Ztruker.
