Are you using 2.4GHz Wifi? If so USB 3 is notorious for interfering with this frequency range. Could try an extension cable to move the adaptor further away from the port. A quick test would be try plugging it into a USB 2.0 port and see if the speeds improve. As you should be able to get 480Mb/s through USB 2 you may choose to just leave it there.
