Those adjustments won't really make the signal strength better but it should make your connection work better when you figure out a way to increase the signal strength.

The latest driver should fix that problem. I've looked and there are 2012 drivers for that adaptor. I've attached it here.

You should be able to go into Device Manager, right click the adaptor and choose to browse your machine for the new driver, install from there. :)

Um.. It didnt boost my signal. Unlike before, it actually installed this new driver. But the results are just the same. I have to be right beside the router to use the internet..
