Underperforming DWA 182

This morning after living with it for a month, I decided to retire the supposedly higher performer DWA 182 Wi-Fi adapter and put back the trusty more than two years old DWA 171.

I could rarely get 100% signal strength with the DWA 182 which I regularly enjoy with the DWA 171. I don't understand why, the DWA 182 is a USB 3 spec vs the DWA 171 USB 2.

What is even more unacceptable is the Sync Tool only works intermittently with the DWA 182 unless I downgrade it from the 5 GHz band to the 2.4 GHz one.
