Possibly a crappy router? Are you able to try it connecting to a different wireless router? This should rule out what hardware is giving you poor range.

Also, BTW, it would be more useful for troubleshooting if you tell us your model name/numbers. Thanks ;) .

Also some simple things to try.
Move the laptop.Sometimes a few feet makes a big difference.
Change the wireless channel being used(1/6/11)in US.
Also there are range extenders that are available if nothing else helps.
Has this always been a problem?
