I was testing the speed of my computer's internet speed on speedtest dot net, and it shows about 5 down 5 up. I tested it on my iPad and iPhone, and they show the normal speed of about 20 down 7 up. I checked my wireless adapter, which is a netgear, and it seems to be working fine. I tried TCP program to boost my speed, and it didn't work. What could be the problem?

My router is a Wireless N netgear router, I have a wireless N adapter, which is capable of 300MBs but the driver software is terrible, and had to find a different adapter driver, and it worked. The old driver didn't let me watch youtube without it crashing. The new driver worked for a while.
