dropped packets F5D8053 N Wireless USB Adapter v6000 [Realtek RTL8192SU]

Since a few days it's almost impossible for me to connect to the Internet wireless due to dropped packets.

I guess it's software related cause other wireless devices don't have this problem.

Some info.

Linux Mint 17.3
architecture: x86_64
kernel: 3.19.0-32-generic
wireless kernel module: r8712u

ifconfig command:
wlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 94:44:52:ed:ee:ba  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          inet6 addr: fe80::9644:52ff:feed:eeba/64 Scope:Link

Thanks for any advice!
