Why Is Mine Connection So Slow?

me and my brother both have a pc side by side when he downloads a game in steam his download speed will run up in the 300.k where mine rarely ever goes above 150.k
we are both using the same Netgear WNDR3300 router and

he is has a pci wireless netgear card which im assuming is just an average wireless card, it only gets a 2 to 3 bar signal.

now this is the wireless card i am running::
i always have a full 5 bars signal,

why is his downloading things much faster than mine? am i having driver issues?
i am also running a asus formula IV crosshair Mb and it came with a traffic shaping tool that is suppose to help the internet that i also installed could that be the issue? Any Help Would be Great, Thanks

Disable or uninstall the tool and you will see!?

0_0 i disabled the net speed tool, really called "cfos traffic Shaping" And now it runs at 160 kb/s to 368kb/s... thanks =)
Btw is there any other programs or tools or just "Tips and Tricks" that can help make sure that my pc will stay this way?

There is no need for an additional tool. The windows network stack already has a quality-of-service component and that works very well with default settings.
