Help mitigating some congestion

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Lately I've been having some pretty bad problems getting a consistent signal from my router. My desktop, and only my desktop as been losing the connection to my router often, and I eventually replaced it (with this adapter) and while the signal is better, I still have a poor connection that often drops out on me. This is what my area looks like right now. My question is, what can I do to improve the quality of my adapter? And why would my nexus 7 have no problems with wireless in the same room as my rig?

Could the adapter be overheating? I've had problems with my Wireless Adapters dropping and needing to unplug and plug them back in. If possible put them beside a fan and see if it helps.

Drivers can be an issue.
Could be the Router not liking to negotiate with the Wifi Adapter.

The adapter doesn't feel too warm, but I'll dig up a fan and see if it makes a difference.
How would I investigate the driver issue? I have the latest drivers from their website.
I also didn't mention I have the verizon fios actiontec router
