I have purchases a small D-link DWA 131(Hardware Version-E1) Wifi-Adapter and i have installed the necessary drivers for the same.But the Adapter gives me a low signal strength when the wifi router is in the next room and when i use this adapter in windows,it gives me a good full signal strength.Any ideas how can i fix this?

I am using Ubuntu 17.10

I was able to solve this question by installing another set of drivers and blacklisting the previous adapter driver that i had installed.This was the source of the conflict and now things are fine again.
