earlier today i installed windows 8.1 on my windows 7 pc

windows 8/8.1 comes with really bad wireless internet drivers
i installed the drivers for my TL-WN727N but the old drivers are still their and are making my internet speed 1/4 of a MB/s and it used to be 4.5 MB/s

i tried uninstalling the 802.11n drivers but it kept coming up again and again
i then tried wired internet which works just fine but i'm not gonna use it because my pc is located upstairs whilst my router is downstairs

Configure the router to broadcast only 802.11n, then check if the connection speed improves.

Else, update windows and try a different driver for the wlan card.
