Windows 7: ASUS PCE-N15 issue (or just internet probs?)

ASUS PCE-N15 issue (or just internet probs?)

Okay, so, I'm a teenager, who LOVES video games, so for Christmas, I built a (gaming but not really) computer. As I said in the title, I have an ASUS PCE-N15 adapter for wireless internet. I know it's been a while since I built it, but I've been putting up with this issue, and frankly, I'm OVER IT! So, to the problem. This adapter came with a disk, which downloads the drivers and everything, and gives you this nifty application that helps you connect to the internet and check signal strength and connection quality, and obviously, Windows has it's own little tab in the bottom right hand corner to do this as well. What it says on the Windows internet thing when I scroll over my wireless network is:
Name: ************
Signal Strength: Excellent
Security Type: WPA-PSK
Radio Type: 802.11n
SSID: ************
Notice how what the signal strength is... When I click on the application that came with the ASUS drivers, I click on status and it says the same thing, except for signal strength and also gives me connection quality (it also says I'm on channel 11 and that my current data rate is 65 Mbps). For connection quality, it stays, for the most part, 90-100% (every now and then dipping below that), which sounds pretty good, until you look at what it says for signal strength. It stays, constantly, in the high 50s to low 70s percent-wise. Now does that sound EXCELLENT to you? I think not... I can't even play my favorite game (League of Legends) without disconnecting or getting terrible ping spikes, as well as my download speed TANKING (I'll link the results down below of my desktop, my laptop [The main reason I built the computer is so I could run League of Legends with good graphics at 60 FPS, which I could barely maintain 30 FPS on the lowest visual settings on this laptop], and my mom's laptop as well, and I'll edit in results as well). We just got DirecTV, so we had to move the router (when it normally would have been right beside me) 10-20 feet away. If you need any other info on parts, I can deliver them upon request.
P.S. Here are the links. Speedtest will be first, then Pingtest
My Desktop:

My Laptop:

Mom's Laptop:

P.P.S. All of these were taken at approximately the same time, in the same house, while the other two were also on the internet.
P.P.P.S. You may want to know what I have done to try and fix it. I have restarted my computer and router many times over and nothing helps, as well as uninstalling and reinstalling the ASUS adapter drivers with the disk, which didn't work either. Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.
P.P.P.P.S. The internet seems to be faster in the morning and right when I get home, at 4:00 but still, I'm afraid to play League of Legends in fear of ping spikes as high as 12,000+ (I have had this high... Tell me about it. =\)
P.P.P.P.P.S. Last post script/edit (I think). My friend also built his computer and has the same ASUS adapter as I do, and his internet is worse than mine (Speed-wise). If his sister gets on the internet, his ping spikes a lot, but not to 12,000... Anyway, he doesn't have this problem, because he doesn't get ping spikes and disconnects unless his sister is on the computer, where as I get it even if nobody is home but me and the only machine on is my desktop. Again I say thank you for sticking though this post.
