Have you installed the latest drivers from d-link's website?

I use the same card with Win 7 and no issues running the latest drivers.

Definitely not a power issue as I run lots of Us purchased equipment in Sweden.

Use the original PCI card. Just because it has 3 bars doesn't mean it's going to run slower.

you likely have an overloaded router, Too many wifi devices. Try to do a hard reset of your router and see if the connection improves

i thought i would explain - Cheap wifi routers that companies like AT&T give you can only support a small number of devices, to add to your problem, most of them are only type G and are very much outdated. They tend to not like connecting to type n devices, even if its reverse compatible.

If this is your case, you should get a new wifi router and not have an issue. get a decent router with good range, it will payoff when you're gaming!

(p.s. im assuming you have one of those All-in-one router/modem/wifi boxes)
