Just make sure the auto selected channels use either channel 1, 6 or 11, the secondary channels don't matter.
The above chanels don't overlap and will give the best performance.
The speeds you are getting is really slow even for 11b.
Wiithout downloading the driver what Chipset is the Trendnet router ?
The Dell 1500 WLAN card would peak around 60Mbps on a good day, but with a Marvell based chipset router.
I have not tested a Broadcom based WLAN card with a...

WPA2/AES should not slow down your connection speed by very much.
There will be a small hit but it should be little.
Cheers Celly, I must grab FW 1.11 still on 1.10
Looks like the DIR-855 is still having issues so maybe a next year...
Anything Broadcom Chipset based roter in that case (1505 = broadcom) is best.
The Dlink DIR-655 works great with the Dell 1500 that is in my Wifes D820
The DIR-655 is Atheros based, but the broadcom cards work well with other...
The N1 is a slow router as can be seen in many a review.
The N1 is rock steady though and easy to setiup.

Atheros is the best for speed...
Should have gone there first

The default setting is ofcourse for 11n.
Try one of the other ones (not legacy as this forces 54Mbps max)
Hopefully one of them will get you to 108Mbps.
Have fun playing...
Driver I made for my 5008x but should work happily with older cards as well.
It will ignore any 11n settings.
I mostly play with the Antenna settings as my card is so finnecky at connecting to routers.
But all other settings...
