Desktop no internet, laptop right next to it very fast internet

I am currently having problems with the internet connection on my PC but my laptop (right next to it) is running perfectly fine in terms of internet speed. In our house we have a main router downstairs and a booster router upstairs to enable the people upstairs to connect to the internet. The thing is I can connect to the router downstairs but the connection is VERY SLOW but when I try to connect to the router upstairs I can connect to the internet but cannot load any pages or run anything associated with the internet. I am using a Dual-band Wi-fi dongle for my PC because it does not have an integrated wi-fi system whereas my laptop does.

My PC is windows 8.1 and my laptop is windows 7. I have recently finished an update on my PC, since then these problems have occurred

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
