Hello, I've bought a new PCIe wifi network adapter.

A D-Link Xtreme N DWA-556.

I can tell you that it is not Xtreme in anyway at the moment.

Ever since installing, i've suffered from BSoD and reboot loop. I've managed to fix those issues, but now i'm left with a very unstable connection with incredibly low download and upload speed. My ping is freakin' 400+!!

After some searching, i've heard that the driver is the issue.

My laptop (on which i'm currently typing on) has no problem with its connection, and it's in the same room as my desktop with the wifi card.

Could someone please help, i'm on the edge of insanity.

Having some trouble installing the driver, windows keeps telling me that "the best driver software for your device is already installed".

Anyway to bypass this?

Installed the drivers and solved the connection and ping issue, but i'm still suffering from low download speed.

About 2.4mbps :S

Thanks for the help, but have anyone solved this issue, if you've solved it, please help me :)
