N series routers can communicate at a speed of 150 Mbps, only if the wireless adapter that is built-in into the computer comes under N standard... Most of the wireless adapters comes under G standard, which can communicate only at a speed of 54 Mbps... The N standard routers are backward compatible, which can communicate with N standard adapters at 150 Mbps, and with G standard adapters at 54 Mbps and with B standard at 11 Mbps...
The speed in which the adapters can communicate are listed below... B - 11 Mbps G - 54 mbps N - 150 Mbps
The 802.11 protocol is for wireless adapters. If your is 11MBs, it is a b card. Buy a g or n card to achieve the 54 MBs you want. Be sure to uninstall the b card and software before you install the new card.
Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.
Sometimes the built-in Windows Wireless Configuration Utility fouls up. You may have to install and use the Client Manager Application for the TrueMobile 1150 Wireless Network Card.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turn up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Assuming you initially set up the router using the wired lan adapter and lead, enabled DHCP in the settings.
First stand right next to your router; Dells wireless is a little tempremental, go to control panel and in there should be Dell wireless monitor, open this up refresh it and see if it finds any wireless networks, if so try to connect.
Dissable your wired network lan adapter.
Go to the properties of your wireless card and on the TCP/IP line click properties again and ensure that obtain an ip address automatically is selected, press ok and restart the pc.
