Please provide complete specifications for (1) your computer, (2) the adapter, (3) the WAP - wireless access point (or wireless network device your computer is connecting to).

Is that the only computer on your network? Do other computers work fine? Are all devices 11n? If not, since that is not a "simultaneous dual band" wireless router, it may be toggling down to the slowest device on your network.

Also, do make sure your system is fee of malware.

No, it is not the only computer on my network. The other computers also only go up to 72MBPS :/, like mine, they are wireless N too. The setting on the router is 'Wireless N 40 MHZ', and my system is definitely virus-free, and all my devices are 11n, but the printer, i don't know what that is.

There are a lot of things that can affect performance. From what I can tell, the max speed of your router is 100mb/s. You average 72mb/s. I bet you have an 8mb connection? Unless you went with a better router, I don't see anything wrong. Other than not seeing the performance measurement you desire, are you experiencing any other issues?
