Horrible connection with a Rosewill RNX-N250PCe

So in the past week I've bought a RNX-N250PCe model wireless networking card from Rosewill, and even though I seem to have successfully installed the drivers and seated it correctly in its PCI express slot, it doesn't seem to want to maintain a good connection to my router. I don't mean as in It doesn't have the range required to pick up the signal. I mean that even though a solid connection has been made to my router, my internet is choppy and sometimes drops to around .5 mb/s download and .65 mb/s upload, and can take times of almost 2000 ms to ping a server. Can anyone help? I can post my PC's specs if that will help (I built it, so that might be part of it).

Also when I first installed it, it couldn't even make a solid connection. It would connect to my router, then when I tried to load a webpage it would disconnect from my router altogether. I uninstalled the drivers, powered off, opened my case and took it out, booted up, shut down again, then reinstalled it and the drivers and that's how I got where I am now.

    Hey did you ever get this worked out? I'm have the same problem and can't seem to find a solution.

    No, I literally ran an ethernet cable out of my upstairs window down to my room. No solution as far as I can see, but in the end I think it might have been the router, rather than the card. Good luck :/

    So I think it might be your router... I took my rig to my brothers place and it ran fine all day long. And when I brought it back home I moved the desk to the other side of the room and it works perfect now! I also uninstalled the utility software it came with and just got newest drivers from the web and it also seemed to help the connection problem just a little.
