To clear the confusion quickly, B = bytes, b = bits.

So the router is 108 Mbps and your connection is showing 18 Mbps. Your problem is simply that you are not connected at the proper speed rating to your router. Make sure the router is set to the full speed for wireless clients. Do this in your router's configuration page, usually or

If you are using a D-Link router, under Wireless, look for a setting called Super G Mode. Set that to Super G Mode with Dynamic Turbo.

If there is an 802.11g Only mode, enable that.

WMM (Wireless QOS) can be turned off as well as extended range mode.
