You are mistaken, the 54Mbps refers to the legacy supported speeds of that adaptor which are a max for wireless G "legacy".

When in wireless N only mode the RTL8188 is capable of precisely 150Mbps, per this from Intel.

The Realtek RTL8188SU-GR is a highly integrated single-chip Wireless LAN (WLAN) USB 2.0 network interface controller compatible with the IEEE 802.11n specification. It combines a MAC, a 1T1R capable baseband, and RF in a single chip. The RTL8188SU-GR provides a complete solution for a high-performance wireless client.

The RTL8188SU-GR baseband implements Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MIMO) Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) with one transmit and one receive path (1T1R). Features include one spatial stream transmission, short Guard Interval (GI) of 400ns, spatial spreading, and support for both 20MHz and 40MHz channel bandwidth.

For legacy compatibility, Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS), Complementary Code Keying (CCK) and OFDM baseband processing are included to support all IEEE 802.11b, and 802.11g data rates. Differential phase shift keying modulation schemes, DBPSK and DQPSK with data scrambling capability are available, and CCK provides support for legacy data rates, with long or short preamble. The high speed FFT/IFFT paths, combined with BPSK, QPSK, 16QAM, and 64QAM modulation of the individual subcarriers, and rate compatible punctured convolutional coding with coding rate of 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, and 5/6, provide higher data rates of 54Mbps and 150Mbps for IEEE 802.11g and 802.11n OFDM respectively.

Maybe next time you should listen to my advice and use the 802.11n Only setting as I was referring to earlier. :)

In fact I made another slight adjustment and I'm now getting this. 802.11ac you better believe it's fast. This completely gets rid of the wireless bottle neck, I get the same ISP speeds wired or wireless now.
