To do this, open this Network Connections Control Panel to disable the option labelled 'Let Windows manage my wireless connections’. Alternatively, run the utility that came with your card and you should find an option to give full control to this program rather than Windows.

Open the Administrative Tools control panel and choose Services. Scroll down the list of services and double-click Wireless Zero Configuration. Click Stop to end the service now. Select Manual (or Disabled) for the Startup Type.
Your wireless adapter is now freed from Windows, but you will need to install another connection manager, preferably from your adapter vendor, to connect to a network.

You don't notice it as much when just surfing web sites, but videos need lots of time and bandwidth to play. That is the weakest area that gets hammered, videos.
You can get a booster or yagi antenna and aim towards the wi-fi signal to upscale the signal strength. Remember, the location of the wireless router sometimes affects network connectivity and signal strength as does air pressure, temperature, humidity, and other microwave/2.4 gigh equipment operating in close proximity.
The other thing is whats running on your pc taking up cpu cycles that will affect rendering time.
I had a linksys usb wireless adapter that worked fine when first installed than gets slower the longer it was in use. I than purchased another model that was pci and it worked fine till later when it also slowed down. I am 98% sure now it is my 1.8 gh pc that is slow.
