Computer is like 6-7m away from router, signal through 2 walls.
Not really sure what I'm supposed to see from Xirrus.
Side question: The new adapter I got is Dualband, and it says it's connected to my router on channels 11 and 7, but my router is only sending on channel 11, is there a problem? Channel 6 is another wifi, that's why I'm concerned.
You don't want to be using channel bonding with a weak signal as it will only make things worse. Channel bonding only works well if you have a very strong signal.
To get on single channel mode go into the routers settings and change the setting that says 20-40Mhz and change it to 20Mhz only. Use Xirrus to make sure the channel is clear.
You will also want to disable the Msoft virtual wifi miniport adaptor as it can cause connection problem on some systems. You can do that in Device Manger.
It might also help to delete the other wireless profiles "in Windows" by going to the Network and Sharing Center, then on the left choose "Manage Wireless Connections" you will see the other wireless profiles there.
This connection "might" also work better without the D-Link connection software installed.
