Good Morning bigdawg! I found an interesting forum that discusses this. Also, take a look at this wiki. It may clear up some of the confusion in regards to the differences in data rate units when discussing connection speeds. I'm assuming your wireless router is Draft 802.11n, does your laptop support 802.11n (either internally or with an expansion card)? Good luck!

Your wireless router will need to support channel bonding in order to reach the theoretical speed of 300 megabits per second. Utilizing one channel with 802.11n cuts the top end in half to ~150 megabits per second. What is the model number of the router you are using?
