Why is my interface with tom's hardware all weird text only stuff?

I use those cheap wifi usb adapters in our computers and they're fine.

But now I have a computer in a faraway steel shed and I need better reception out there so I might invest in something a tad better.

What should I look at?

The format of this page is awful. Perhaps it's meant for iphones or something? I'm on a pc. How do I fix it?
Yep, it's a tg800 router in australia - a telstra 'gateway' broadband wifi/router.
I might stick a hole through the shed wall and take a usb extension through it....
Spending money on a fancier adapter isn't going to help by sounds of it?

No, that's not what it should look like - it's stripping out all the HTML5 / Javascript - do you have Opera set to a mobile mode? Does it look the same in a different browser?

20m isn't that far - it's probably due to being inside the shed (low signal). I'd suggest an outdoor bridge for that application (since it will be more weatherproof).
