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

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
