Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

InSSIDer might help you see the connection but it won't help you connect to it. Although if you can't see it with this adaptor it may not show up at all with InSSIDer because it uses the adaptor in your machine to scan the networks.

Try going into Manage Wireless Connections at the Network and Sharing center, delete all the old wireless profiles, create a new one for this connection using the Security and encryption that shows up in InSSIDer for the connection you need to connect to. Pretty sure we already covered the drivers.

I've entered the router configuration with the weaker adapter, there I reset the router and after some time I've found the network with my strong adapter. Thanks for all the help!
