wireless wifi network adapter

Hi
I wanna buy a small wireless wifi network adapter for my laptop.
I'm gonna use it especially in my home, where i'm about 20 metres from the router, and there are 2 walls in the way. My built-in adapter (laptop: dell i5 3521) isn't satisfying. I tried a TP-LINK 150Mbps (with an antenna) and it works great. Problem is it's too big.
Can anybody recommend for a small (preferably without an antenna) network adapter that will catch networks from afar?

Another question:
I understand what's the difference between 100 , 150 , 300 ... Mbps, but what is 10/100 Mbps compared to those?

Thanks in advance

  1. I had tried upgrading before posting. It didn't help.
    So say i'll compromise for good performance though a bigger size. What network adapter (with antenna) should i get? Any advices for good companies?

    *edit: i can't use the mentioned TPLINK all the time, i use it for another computer. So i need to buy new.

  3. I purchased a Netgear micro wireless adapter, and after installing the software, found it works well. The cost is around $25.00.
  4. You won't need to worry about the 10/100 mbps unless you have extremely fast internet and a great wireless router as well.
