go to my network places, view network connections and then right click on your wireless card and then properties and then on the general tab under connect using click on configure and then click on the advance tab and see what the transmit rate and power are.

maybe there is another wireless network around by you that it is connecting to. to see click on my network places and then view network connections and then then click on your wireless connection and then a list of things that you can click on will come up to the left in a panel and click on view available wireless networks.
