I'm assuming your laptop only has an 802.11g device in it. 802.11n devices are backwards compatible with 802.11g, but not completely vice versa. If you are using an 802.11g card to connect to an 802.11n Access Point or WiFi router, it will see it as a "G" connection and will only connect at "g" speeds.
