    My internet connection is really slow. I have a network adapter hooked onto my desktop. And the wireless router is not that far away 20-30 feet. I have a slow internet connection. My roomate's room next to me has a built in wifi that is faster than my connection for some reason or can surf the internet much faster. I got a 802.11n rosewill network adapter. Any ways to improve the speed? Much help appreciated.

    Create a parabolic reflector with foil and place it onto your router's antenna.

    It worked for me. My router is about 30-40 feet away.

    I used to have 2 bars. After creating a parabolic reflector, I now have 5 bars.

    Also to mention the fact that a heat furnace is interfering the signals, plus my router is downstairs.
