Windows reports an Ad-hoc connection signal strength as excellent,
but only states 1.0Mbps(it should be fine as it only has to cover a
distance of around 7 feet, through a ceiling), and the actual
internet connection sharing speed of 512kb dsl is somewhere around
4k.

Nope. Should work fine even with older versions of USB.
Rate must be set at 1Mb I think. Change to "auto" or 11Mbs.

Check the channel your on (try moving away from the channel your using/try
1,6 then 11) it could be that you have lots of neighbors with APs and there
is lots of interference on all 3 non overlapping channels (and maybe every
channel). I have 14 APs that I can pick up from my house (as many as 5 on
one channel!!!). Because of this my home AP which use to have a range of
500+ feet outside my house (up the street at the pool, so I know) down to 50
feet and sometimes only at 1-5.5 Mbps max!!

I would try different antennas orientations if you have external antennas (a
move of 1 or 2 feet can yeild great results, also if think you might be
getting some interference, place the antennas horizontally on both systems.
Typicaly Ad hoc connections are slower anyway, at least I hear several
complaints about it.
But keep this in mind, they try to connect at the highest speed but if
there is low power or interference the rates will keep stepping down to the
speed where it can maintain a reliable link.

I had the same issue, this is what I did to resolve.

1. ontrol panel > system > Device manager | network adapters > your wireless connection
2. Right click | properties
3. Under property I haad 802.1n channel width (2.4ghz), I unchecked the box that said use default value.
4. Selected the drop down below it and set it to "auto"

It instantly updated my speed to 54mbps.

Then... it went back to 1mbps... but the intenet is now fast again... so I have no idea :)  sorry I started writing this when I got the 54mbps, then it instantly went back down to 1mbps
