Windows 7: 802.11n Wireless LAN Card poor range?

Ah i have found the problem, The wifi card is only compatible with windows 7 64-bit, or XP 32 & 64 Bit.
That would explain the signal loss, because the card cant work at its peak (best)
if you want full signal again you would have to downgrade back to XP or buy a new card.

I would try the latest driver from the TP link site. Try installing the driver only which is the 2.4Mb download, second one down. Just install the driver then let Windows handle the connection. If the driver alone doesn't work then download and run the Utility from the link.

This shouldn't be marked as solved because it's not.

It doesn't say anything about 32 or 64 bit.
