I have already read a lot on another topics about this card but haven't find a solution.

I have recently built a new PC on MSI Z87-g45 gaming mobo (bios v1.5). I am using Windows 7 Professional x64. All drivers are installed. I don't have any anty-malware software right now.
At first when using drivers from CD the connection was very poor, loosing a lot of packets and the bandwith was at around ~50kb (It should be 4 Mb).

What have I already done:
- Installing the newest drivers from Asus
- Uninstalling Asus software and using Windows 7 feature instead.
- Uninstalling Asus drivers and installing from realtek site (card is using RTL8192CE) - I am currently using this as they are recommended in another topics.
- I was trying to move card to another PCI-E slots.

In current situation my case is standing under desk in corner and I cannot connect to the router or it does but none of pings are successful.
I can connect and use internet when i move case at the center of my room, but even then ping to the router never goes down below 2ms, mostly it is 3-4ms with jumps to ~30-40ms from time to time and 10% loss. Using Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector i figured out that under desk the signal strenght is -70 dBm and at the center of the room -68dBm.

For comparison i used my 3year old asus n43jf notebook with Atheros AR9285. Under desk the ping is ~1.5ms on average without any packets lost and signal at -77dBm. At the center it is 1ms with -64dBm.

I don't have physical access to the router although i can log into it. It uses WPA2-PSK / AES. I have tried using different channels without any results.
The router is Zyxel P-2812HNU-F3 with changed (limited) software by the provider.

Is there anything else i can try or i should use my warranty?

Hi there,

Yeah i had a similar problem. I ended up using driver version and it worked for me.

First, download from here:

Then go to device manager, right click on the the wireless adapter and select locate driver manually (something along those lines) and select the correct folder.

Wait for the driver to install and test speeds.

Good luck!

@shadow_city it doesn't help ; /

New clue, i have changed Bandwith to 20 MHz Only and it helped a lot, i can connect when case is under desk. Unfortunately this is still ~100ms to router with 5% packet lost.
