Windows 7: D-Link DWA-552 Xtreme N Desktop Adapter Causing Stuttering

D-Link DWA-552 Xtreme N Desktop Adapter Causing Stuttering

My desktop d-link wireless card is causing my desktop to stutter. I have done a bunch of tests on my hardware / software / drivers, and I am sure it is a problem with the D-link card. I am currently at school where I have to connect to the internet using XpressConnect ( Cloudpath Networks - WPA2 ).

The stuttering effects the entire system (sound, video, keyboard/mouse, etc) and lasts for a few seconds. Additionally, it only occurs when streaming video/music online, or when playing online games.

I have updated the drivers, and I have installed the drivers without the D-link software using device manager and selecting the driver files from my computer.

Here is a video of what is happening:

Overheat causing stuttering in game

I thought it was a processor issue, since it was reading at being under 100% load, but when I checked my temperatures, the CPU was barely under any stress while the video card had heated to 111 degrees. ...
