I recently upgraded to a new Comcast modem that can do 150 Mbps. But I checked my wireless internet card on my HP PC model s5-1020 and it can only do 100 Mbps. I have a wired connection so I thought that would make it faster but its the same speed. Is there anything I can do or buy that would be bring me up to 150 Mbps?

Are you using a separate router? If so, you might check to see if that router only has a 100 Mbps WAN port.

No, its a Comcast router. The Comcast technician checked the line and it is 150 Mbps. 

 

If I go into Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Local Area Connection > Properties > Configure > Advanced > Speed & Duplex, my choices only go up to 100 Mbps. I need a wireless card or a wired one that can do 150Mbps.

You need a gigabit network card or a wifi card that can do 300mbps.

 

"The 802.11n standard supports a maximum theoretical speed of 300 Mbps"

 

Catch here is the wifi router has to support those speeds

I have always had good luck with the gigabit cards.  Altho as already said you need to make shure your router can work at that speed also.
