I've never had any luck with PCIe wireless cards, they've all been useless for me! I know your situation from other posts you've made recently; could you not ask your landlord to open up the locked cupboard and allow you to install a powerline ethernet adaptor? I've used one for just over a year now and they're great devices! . I got a £30 80Mbps pair from eBuyer (eBuyer's own brand) and they work with no problems! No setup required either, just plug n play!

All other hardware (including my partner's laptop) work just fine, so the channel definitely doesn't need changing.
Anything else I can try?
It's the letting agents that don't care about the performance of the connection They won't do anything.
And I refuse to pay £30 for something they should be fixing I've already bought 2 extra network cards.
EDIT: Two more images:
I improved my wireless by putting the wireless router (I use an older router just for the wireless network) in the loft because it cuts down on the interference from walls because your signal is just "beamed" right down through the house. I know you said you don't want to spend money but you could invest in a wireless antenna if your router supports it (i.e. If the antenna on the back screw on then you can replace them with much better antennas).
This kind of thing.

Pick a Better Channel for Your Wi-Fi
All Wi-Fi must share channels with other networks in the environment. Too many networks sharing or overlapping a channel can slow down the performance of all Wi-Fi networks on that channel. This Wi-Fi scanner helps you see the best channel for your Wi-Fi.

No idea what type of network it is.
Curious why your not seeing that sky SSID that is HUGE signal compared to the creative-143 your trying to connect too? On the other listing.. That makes no sense - and clearly would be stomping all over your signal on that channel.
If you do not have access to the router, there is NO way for you to change the channel. But channel 6 is in heavy use.. I am at a loss to why your not seeing the sky629f8 SSID? is that a ad-hoc network? And your filtering those out? Can not see from the other listing if its inf or adhoc. But that signal clearly would be not good for your signal.. Move over to 1 or 11, those seem much lower - I don't recall if you have access to the router gui or not?
If you notice your transmit your at 1mbps -- that is going to blow.. And then your download your only at 13.. Again that blows for even a G signal.

I would recommend using the wifi software in windows to connect to the network and not that crappy 3rd party software.
And those channels still are overlapped by channel 6 -- why would you have picked those? 1, 6 and 11 are 3 channels that do not overlap each other. So here the channels and the overlap
Since you have access to the router - change the channel to 1 or 11, and try doing something other than wpa2 aes, try wpa1 (tkip) try it open.. How is the speed then?
