How can I improve my wireless connection signal?

Hi,
I've just got a new NETGEAR Wireless-N 300 router, and I used the 'set-up wizard' software to get it up and running. The router is situated in the same room as my laptop, and only a few feet away, with no obstructions between the router and the laptop. But despite this, when I check the signal strength, my laptop says the signal strength is 'poor'.
What can I do to get the strength up to 'excellent'?.
Thanks.
