I too think 90% certain it's a borked driver or interference with it!
Try as many as you can! I use one from last summer on my system as it drops connections the least!

I think your Computer wireless card has a Broadcom chipset.
Look on the Broadcom site for latest Win 7 driver.

You must find out what chip it is to match driver!
