How do I improve my connection rate to 150-300Mbps?

http://www.pcworld.com/article/145098/new_80211n_routers.html Could someone please clarify Junes statement? Other than June, Because I am truly trying to understand his statement and cannot figure out why he's saying it. I am trying to understand why he says it's the Neighbor friendly mode when 80211n draft is capable of 144Mbps using only one 20 MHz channel. I am only talking about connection rates. In my network I am able to connect at 144Mbps on one PC and only 72 on another using same OS WIN 7. So if June's claim is accurate how then am I connecting at two different rates from same router within a ten foot radius. Understand this too for some reason the famous inISSIDer only depicts ONE 20 MHz channel being used so what is going on. Did I stumble on a hack without knowing it? No Pixie Dust was used either. Not trying to start a pissing match rather trying to understand his statement. This taken from the above link Unfortunately, the limited bandwidth of the 2.4-GHz range means that just one 802.11n router using channel bonding will take up virtually the entire 2.4-GHz spectrum, leaving no room for neighboring routers, and causing severe interference. For this reason, draft-2.0's so-called good-neighbor policies require that routers ship in 20-MHz mode, and that, when in 40-MHz mode, they drop to 20-MHz operation if they sense nearby Wi-Fi nets or other 2.4-GHz devices. The top link rate in 20-MHz mode is only 150 mbps. June has said many times that the max link rate is 72 rather than 150 (144) From my own experience and after reading this article to me June may be misinformed. Again I am only trying to understand his statement which he quotes several times a week. I am thinking it's rather a wifi card issue rather than the neighbor policy. I would really appreciate the moderators input on this. Thanks

Other factor is wifi adapter driver needs to me updates as well. Some WiFi adapter model is known to connect at 72Mbps as well

June, A 20mhz draft n channel is capable of connecting @144 is it not? You said above "device is getting 72Mbps then router is using the neighbor friendly mode" that's my concern. Sure, drivers / PC hardware are more than likely the problem but the NF mode isn't even remotely involved in this case wouldn't you agree?

This laptop has a Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC though I'm not sure how that would effect the other laptops having the same low speeds. Still, I updated my wifi driver and nothing changed. As for as the other SSIDs around me, there are normally 10 other connections at any given time
