My brother has a dell xps and his wireless connection is so strong it can locate so many wireless connections around the univeristy campus.

The reason wireless range differs from PC to PC (even when the router is the same) is that not all wireless adaptors are equal in their pickup range. You need to choose a wireless adaptor with a wide range as opposed to standard range. This will be stated on the retail packaging. The 'RangeMax' wireless adaptors from Netgear are of the wide range type.
