Network Adapter problem. (TP-Link TL-WN951N)

Specs: Windows 7
I have a TP-Link TL-WN951N Adapter in my desktop. its signal is so poor its causeing packetloss and frequent drop outs. Yes the signal does go down stairs in the the main study, witch is 2 brick walls / floor and i can see that causing some issue.
but my laptops stock standard card on the motherbord proforms fine from the exact same location.

is there somthing wrong with the card? do i need to configure somthing? or does the wireless god just hate me?
any help would be great.

some numbers:

1.4mb/s download rate
0.5mb/s upload.
0% packet loss
ping 100~190

0.54 mb/s download rate
0.32 mb/s upload rate
between 3-15% packet loss.
ping 230~ 500

You can try checking for newer drivers for the device and if there are some, apply them to it.

Barring that, there's likely not much you can do aside from:
a) Moving the computer closer
b) Replacing the existing wireless NIC with a better one
c) Connect with a network cable to your router

Yes, I get that the laptop appears to have better signal strength. This could be directly due to it having a better piece of hardware (NIC) than what you're using in the PC so comparing the two is like comparing oranges and apples. Both are fruit, but they dont' taste the same.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
