The problem is NOT your wireless adapter, if your ping is 1096ms on a wired connection. Something else is wrong. As I said in your other thread, I suspect thermal throttling of your CPU, due to the missing fourth heatsink mount point.

Please fix the obvious physical things FIRST, and please keep your issues to a SINGLE thread. It makes it MUCH harder to troubleshoot, if we don't have the fuller picture.

Edit: And for goodness sakes, get a DECENT wifi adapter.

Like this one:

Or this one:

I've used both, they are decent, suitable for 24/7 operation (larger size doesn't overheat much like those nano-adapters do), works well with a 3x3 AC router (200-500Mbit/sec on a 5Ghz band).
