Slow internet speed on new PC build

Hi guys, I recently built a new PC and have found that the internet is terrible in comparison to my laptop. I generally have one bar and struggle to load pages on the internet. My Wireless adapter is a TP Link TL-WN751ND 150Mbps Wireless N PCI Adapter. My motherboard is a Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3.

For a comparison, my Laptop d/l speed is 17.72Mbps, and my new PC is... okay it can't load it, will post the d/l speed when I can connect to the page.

    about 25/30 feet from router, antenna at the back of the PC pointed upwards, can't think of much interference, have 3 other laptops in the house however the internet on mine never faltered due to this..

    You have the latest drivers installed for that card?
  5. Quite possibly not... Will they be available on the TP Link website?
  6. Would the drivers have been on the CD that came with the card?

    The website should have the 'latest'. The CD has whatever was available when it got printed.
  8. Okay, thank you, I'll have a go at that.
